Honors or Upper

In this course, students investigate major topics, methods and subdisciplines in the scientific study of living organisms and vital processes. Major topics include the properties of living organisms; biochemistry and cellular processes; reproduction and genetics; variation, selection and evolution; ecology; classification of organisms; plant and animal phylum; and human biological systems. Students engage with material through a blend of live online instruction, self-guided study, collaborative group work and hands-on labs.
Note: Summer Intensives are accelerated yearlong courses offered over summer. Students in these courses should expect significantly increased workloads.
