BIO 110 is designed to enable students to understand the fundamental concepts, principles, and processes upon which all life is based; the relationship of the course material to their day-to-day world; and how to apply the scientific method. Students are provided with the tools to enable them to become responsible, scientifically literate global citizens and voters. Students who successfully complete BIO 110 have the ability to read critically a biologically relevant popular press article and to evaluate the reporting of technological, health-related and environmental issues. The ability empowers students to make better, scientifically-informed life decisions.

Additional Information: BIO 110 is required for Biology [BS]  and Biology Minor , Honors Sections may be available for this course
