BIO 114 - Introduction to the Biological Sciences


Bio 114 lays the foundation for your journey through the biological sciences. This lecture and laboratory course introduces you to major themes in biology, the process of biological discovery, practical skills of experimentation, and the intersection of biology with social justice. We introduce biology not as a list of disconnected facts, but as a holistic science. You will learn skills such as interpreting figures, applying quantitative reasoning, reading critically, and designing and conducting experiments. We don’t expect you to become experts in this one semester but to develop the tools and understanding necessary for your journey as a biologist.
