Rationale for Knowledge of the Disciplines - BIO 105 is designed to enable students who are not biology majors to understand the fundamental concepts, principles and processes upon which all 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 105 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.
