General Information : BIOL 141, Foundations of Biology: Cells, Energy and Organisms is a course designed for individuals who have completed high school biology and chemistry. This course is required for students majoring in Biology and Biochemistry and for pre-professional Allied Health students intending to enroll in BIOL 251. However, students from all disciplines are welcome. Much of what you learn this semester should be applicable to many areas of your own major. If you feel your high school background in biology and chemistry is not adequate for this course , you should consider enrolling instead in a non-majors course with a lab such as SCI 100, BIOL 106, or BIOL 109. NOTE 1: BIOL 141 does not include a lab.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
