Humans & the Biological World (BIOL-L 100) 3 credit lecture or 5 credit
lecture and laboratory
This course will expose you to nearly every area of biology and every level of biological
organization. However, my goal is not to turn you into a biologist. Rather, my intent is to help you fulfill some of the common goals of a university education. Among these
goals is to understand the philosophy of science, how it works and how a scientific approach to gaining knowledge differs from other world views. I also hope to instill in you an informed appreciation of the important and dynamic role of biology and science in society--a role that will only increase in the future. No branch of science will impact the future quality of life on earth more than biology.
