COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Biology is the study of life, and as such, students will explore the great diversity of organisms and investigate their biological systems at a molecular, cellular and macrobiological level. Students will have the opportunity to apply their knowledge to real life examples through the examination of relevant articles and social issues. Hands-on laboratory exercises will also aid to cement concepts learned in class.

This course requires a study commitment, outside of instruction time, of approximately 3 hours per week.
