BIO1511 Introduction to Biology


This course aims to deepen the scientific and biological literacy of students not majoring in Life Science. In contrast to traditional, vocabulary-dense biology courses, this course will offer students the opportunity for a more personally relevant biology experience focused on applying scientific inquiry to current biological issues. The process of how scientists study the biological world and biological evolution provides the thematic foundation for the course. Topics and themes addressed will be drawn from nutrition, health and disease; genetics and biotechnology; and ecology and environmental studies. Primary learning modes include lecture, discussion, presentations, case studies, laboratory investigations and field trips. Students will be expected to demonstrate their understanding of the course content through a variety of written and oral assessments. Credits: 4.000
