  • Students will demonstrate an understanding of organismal form, function, and diversity. 
  • Students will demonstrate an understanding of cellular structure and interactions necessary for the maintenance and reproduction of life.
  • Students will demonstrate an understanding of the principles of genetics, evolution and ecology.
  • Students will discuss and critically review biological scientific papers.

Minor Requirements (20 Units)


To complete the minor students must take General Biology I with a lab, General Biology II with a lab, Cell Physiology, Genetics with a lab and Ecology.
