LIFE SCIENCE 2: Cells, Tissues, and Organs (Lecture 1), 5 credits
Monday, Wednesday, Friday 10:00 AM - 10:50 AM
Description of the course:
Designed for students interested in the life sciences and as part of a four-
course sequence (LS1-LS4), this course has three hours of lecture and an average of two hours of
discussion per week, including labs. It covers structure from molecules to cells to systems and
physiology from cells to systems.
Like most other universities, the University of California expects 3 hours of work each week/credit, or 15
hours each week for a 5-credit course. For this class, that means five hours in class and ten hours outside
of class each week. If you cannot devote this amount of time (or more!), consider taking fewer courses,
working fewer hours on your job, or dropping the course!
