Rationale for Knowledge of the Disciplines - BIO 112, when taken together with BIO 110 , satisfies the requirement for a Natural Science Course in the Knowledge of the Disciplines  portion of General Education . BIO 112 enables students to understand 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 tools to enable them to become responsible, scientifically literate global citizens and voters. Students who successfully complete BIO 112 have the ability to read critically a popular press article and to evaluate reporting of technological, health-related and environmental issues. This ability empowers students to make scientifically-informed life decisions.
