BIOG 1105 - Introductory Biology, Individual Instruction

Fall. 2 or 4 credits, variable. (2 credits by permission of instructor.)

Forbidden Overlap: Students may not receive credit for both BIOG 1105 and BIOG 1440 . Taking BIOG 1105–BIOG 1106  in sequence preferred but not required. No admittance after first week of classes.

D. Campbell.

Designed primarily for pre-medical/veterinary life sciences majors and other students who desire a challenging, broad introduction to fundamental concepts of biology. Cell biology, physiology, anatomy, and biochemistry are strongly emphasized in BIOG 1105. Because some testing involves the use of predissected specimens, students who object to dissections should pursue other course options. The course is based on individualized instruction and offers flexibility in scheduling. Completion of the course requires mastery of a group of core units. Testing on these units is primarily by oral examination. Students who elect to take the course must be able to meet deadlines. Four formal laboratory sessions are offered; additional laboratory work is included in the core units. Evaluation is based on unit testing, written reports on experimental work, practical exams, and a comprehensive final exam. Web site:
