Introduction to Biological Reasoning (Spring)

3.0 units

April Bednarski, Ph.D.

Mitch Kundel, Ph.D.

 

Description:

Students will work to develop a fluency in biological language, methods, and reasoning as applied to human health. We will study the molecular, cellular, and physiological perspectives for each health-related topic. We will zoom in to study processes at the molecular level, swing back out again to examine processes at the cell or physiological level, and examine data and methods that support this knowledge. We will emphasize problem-solving and reasoning as it applies to understanding biological processes. This course is for first-year students only. It does not count for credit towards the biology major. Permission of instructor(s) required.
