BIOL 1108 - Principles of Modern Biology II
About this course: BIOL 1108 takes an organismal approach to biology. Topics include population genetics, evolution, ecology, behavior, and structure/function relationships. In the lab emphasis is on collection and analysis of data from exercises dealing with population genetics and ecology. Fetal pig dissection is included. The objective of this course is give students a broad introduction to some of the major concepts/ideas in biology, which will be covered in greater depth in subsequent courses.
Course goals: This course is intended to develop skills in hypothesis formation and data collection and analysis. It also includes basic concepts, ideas and theories in population genetics, evolution, ecology, behavior, and structure/function relationships. It is intended for the beginning science major or future educator.

BIOL 3370: Relationships among living organisms and their environments at the individual, population, community and ecosystem level.
BIOL 3370L: In laboratory and field activities students will utilize inquiry-based activities that emphasize environmental sampling procedures and statistical analysis of data to explore the role of variability and uncertainty in scientific decision-making as related to ecological processes.
SCI 1101 - Science, Society, and the Environment IThis course is the first in a two part sequence that fulfills the general education science requirement. Using the context of environmental issues it introduces students to the basic nature of matter, energy, and living systems and to the nature of science. Emphasis is placed on making decisions about scientific issues. Science 1101 is not designed for science majors and is not a prerequisite for introductory courses in biology, chemistry, or physics.
SCI 1102 - Science, Society, and the Environment IIThis course is the second in a two part sequence that fulfills the general education science requirement. Using the context of environmental issues, it introduces students to the basic skills and scientific understandings needed by educated citizens to make informed decisions about scientific issues.
