BIO 106 Biology From a Human Perspective

 

BIO 106 is designed to enable students who are not biology majors to understand the following: the fundamental concepts, principles, and processes upon which life is based; the relationship between biology and their day-to-day world; how scientists acquire scientific knowledge; and how this methodology is used to address questions important to health and environmental issues around the world. This information provides students with the tools to enable them to become responsible, scientifically literate global citizens and voters. Students who successfully complete BIO 106 have the ability to critically evaluate popular press articles and other media reporting on technological, health-related and environmental issues. This ability empowers students to make better, scientifically-informed life decisions. As such, BIO 106 meets the requirements of a Natural Science Course in the Knowledge of the Disciplines portion of the new General Education program.
