Biology 1406 (General Biology) is strongly recommended.1
Course Goals: This course is intended for students majoring in one of the physical sciences or lifesciences, engineering, or for students who are pursuing pre-professional programs in medicine,dentistry, pharmacy, veterinary medicine, or other health programs. The course is also beneficial tostudents who are preparing themselves for higher-level science courses in their respective curricula.Core ObjectivesBIOL 2301 fulfills the requirement for the Life and Physical Sciences Foundation Component Area ofthe Core Curriculum. Like other courses in this category, it focuses on describing, explaining, andpredicting natural phenomena using the scientific method. It involves the understanding of interactionsamong natural phenomena and the implications of scientific principles on the physical world and onhuman experiences. As such, it targets the following Core Objectives:Critical Thinking (explain how)Communication (explain how)Empirical and Quantitative Skills (explain how)Teamwork (explain how)Critical Thinking Skills (CT) - creative thinking, innovation, inquiry, and analysis, evaluation andsynthesis of informationCommunication Skills (COM) - effective development, interpretation and expression of ideasthrough written, oral and visual communicationEmpirical and Quantitative Skills (EQS) - manipulation and analysis of numerical data or observablefacts resulting in informed conclusionsTeamwork (TW) - ability to consider different points of view and to work effectively with others tosupport a shared purpose or goal"Program Student Learning Outcomes (PSLOs) for the Biology DisciplineWill display an understanding of biological systems and evolutionary processes spanning all rangesof biological complexity, including atoms, molecules, genes, cells, and organisms.
