BIOS 1010 General Biology

5.0 - 3.0 - 6.0


(1) BIOS 1010L - must be taken at the same time as this course.

Course Description

Students registering for BIOS 1010 must complete the laboratory component of the course: students taking BIOS 1010 on-campus must register for either an on-campus or online section of BIOS 1010L, while students taking BIOS 1010 online or in the hybrid formats do not need to sign up for a separate lab course because the lab is already included. Developing a good understanding of the process of life requires students to have a broad background in the basics of biology. BIOS 1010 provides this background by emphasizing ecology, molecular biology, cell structure and function, genetics, and evolution.
