BIO-115 : Principles of Biology I
Biology is a vast subject that explores all of life, from molecules to ecosystems. Students will acquire a framework of key biological concepts into which they can fit the many new things they will learn. They will become familiar with the scientific process, in particular, the posing and testing of hypotheses, and the scientific study of life, evolution, ecology, plants, and animal forms and functions. Laboratory exercises will encourage students to practice science through hands-on experiments.
