Course - Section Title Days Time Location
BIOL 105 - 52 Human Biology/Lab - - W - - 1335 - 1535 OWS 266
CRN: 21461 0 Credit Hours An introduction to cells, genetics, development and the human body, and the impact of humans on the environment. Laboratories will emphasize investigative scientific problem solving and creative thinking. Does not fulfill entrance requirements for some health professions programs. Pre-health professional students should consult the university's pre-health professions advising committee. This course is designed to meet the need of social work and psychology majors. Two laboratory hours per week. Not open to biology majors, or students who have completed BIOL 101 or BIOL 106.

BIOL 207 - 02 Genetics Ecology Evolution M - W - F 1215 - 1320 MHC 205
CRN: 41460 4 Credit Hours A consideration of the mechanisms of heredity, evolution, population genetics, and population ecology emphasizing hypothesis testing, case studies, and quantitative and experimental approaches to population biology. Topics include: Mendelian genetics, genetic mapping, population genetics, selection theory and the process of adaptation, speciation, macroevolution and phylogenetics, and the growth and regulation of populations. Laboratory work emphasizes techniques for data analysis, including computer simulation and modeling. Three laboratory hours per week. This course fulfills the core-area in natural science in the Natural Science and Mathematical and Quantitative Reasoning requirements in the core curriculum. Prerequisites: Co-enrollment in or previous credit for CHEM 111 or CHEM 115
