Biology - Courses

General Education (GE) student

These courses are designed for the general education (GE) student. Some are lecture only, some are a lecture-laboratory combination.

  • BIO 1000 - Introduction To Life Sciences (lecture/lab)
  • BIO 1400 - Environmental Principles (lecture)
  • BIO 1500 - Human Biology (lecture only)
  • BIO 1700 - Field Botany (lecture/lab, hybrid class)
  • ENVS 1002 - Environmental Science (lecture/lab)

Courses for Major's Sequence

These courses are our major's sequence. They will transfer to four-year colleges as your lower division biology preparation. While you may take these for GE purposes, you are really better off with courses from the GE section above.

  • BIO 2100 - General Biology I: The Unity of Life
  • BIO 2200 - General Biology II: The Diversity of Life and Ecology (prerequisite of BIO 2100)

Courses for careers in Health Professions

These courses are generally taken by students who are preparing for careers in the health professions. They will transfer to four-year colleges as your lower division biology preparation. While you may take these for GE purposes, you are really better off with courses from the GE section above.

  • BIO 2600 - Microbiology (prerequisite of BIO 0891)
  • BIO 2700 - Human Anatomy
  • BIO 2800 - Human Physiology (prerequisite of BIO 0891)

BIOL 0891 - Biology Preparation

BIO 0891 is a one-unit prerequisite for BIO 2600 and BIO 2800. It is online, non-transferable, and non-degree applicable.
