BIO 1201 - Biology in Society I (3)

When Offered: Fall; Spring
GEN ED: Science Inquiry Perspective (Theme: “Biology in Society”)
This lecture course was designed for non-majors and is ideal for students that want to satisfy their interests and natural curiosity about biological systems, but whose primary educational interests lie elsewhere. We will explore the biological basis of relevant societal topics like diet and nutrition, diseases like diabetes and cancer, beneficial versus pathogenic microbes, and stem cell therapies. Our discussions will delve into life at molecular, cellular, and organismal levels while focusing on the practical impact biology has on our lives. This course is offered as part of the “Biology in Society” theme in the General Education Science Inquiry perspective. In order to satisfy this theme, students must take BIO 1201, BIO 1202 , and BIO 1203  for a total of eight credit hours. Students may take BIO 1201 and BIO 1202  in either order and must take BIO 1203  in conjunction with either BIO 1201 or BIO 1202 . Lecture three hours.
(ND Prerequisite: passing the math placement test or successful completion of MAT 0010 .)
