Learning Goals

Upon graduation,

    • Students will understand core biological concepts including:
      • evolution (the process creating the diversity of life-forms and the phylogenetic relationships among major groups)
      • structure and function (the basic units of biological structures that control the functions of living things)
      • information flow, exchange and storage (the influence of genetics on the control of the development of phenotypes)
      • pathways and transformations of energy and matter (the ways in which chemical transformation pathways and the laws of thermodynamics govern biological systems)
      • the nature of complex systems.
    • Students will be capable of understanding, interpreting, and critically evaluating scientific information presented in multiple forms (e.g., numeric, graphical, written
    • Students will be capable of conducting a structured scientific inquiry and thoroughly communicating scientific biological knowledge
