BIOLOGY 120: Fundamentals of Biology I (BIOL 120, 4 Credits)
The basics of cell biology, genetics, molecular biology, reproduction, structure and function of plants and animals with lab work that covers descriptive and experimental aspects of the lecture topics.
 

BIOLOGY 121: Fundamentals of Biology II (BIOL 121, 4 Credits)
Continuation of topics learned in BIOL 120 with a more in-depth look at the key topics
 

BIOLOGY 201: Molecular and Cellular Biology I (BIOL 201, 4 Credits)
A study of the key concepts including cell structure and molecular mechanisms. Topics include gene regulation, genomics, protein synthesis, cell cycle control, and protein degradation in eukaryotic cells
 

BIOLOGY 202: Molecular and Cellular Biology II (BIOL 202, 4 Credits)
Builds on the foundation of BIOL 201 with a more in-depth look at the key topics.
 

BIOLOGY 310: Anatomy and Physiology (BIOL 301, 4 Credits)
In-depth examination of endocrine, cardiovascular, reproductive, urinary, lymphatic, respiratory and immune systems. Comprehensively covers muscular and skeletal structure and function of cells, tissues, and the nervous system.
 

BIOLOGY 315: Microbiology (BIOL 315, 4 Credits)
Surveys the principles of microbiology with emphasis on microorganisms and disease. Identification and control of pathogens, disease transmission, host resistance, and immunity are some of the lecture topics.
 

BIOLOGY 350: Developmental Biology (BIOL 350, 4 Credits)
Examines stages of vertebrate development, plant development, morphogenesis, cell differentiation, organogenesis, nervous system development, and evolution are some topics of discussion.
 

BIOLOGY 400: Genetics (BIOL 400, 3 Credits)
Fundamental principles of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cell genetics. Topics include molecular basis of hereditary, chromosome structure, patterns of Mendelian and non-Mendelian inheritance, evolution, and biotechnical applications.
