BIOL 11 The Science of Life

Biology, like all of science, is a problem-solving endeavor. This course introduces students to a major problem in biology and considers it from many different perspectives, viewpoints and biological levels of organization. Along the way, students are exposed to many of the major concepts in biology, from molecules to ecosystems. Each offering will address a different major problem.  No prerequisites

Note: BIOL 11 (The Science of Life) is one pathway for entering the Biology curriculum. BIOL 11 counts toward the major if it is taken anytime during the first year (including after taking one or more Foundation courses) or as the first biology course. Only one offering of BIOL 11 may be taken for credit. Students interested in the subject matter of Biology Foundation courses may wish to take the Biology Placement test (available in Canvas) to help them make decisions about course selection. 

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
