Program Student Learning Objectives

After completing any course in the BIOL program, students will be able to:  

  1. display an understanding of biological systems and evolutionary processes spanning all ranges of biological complexity, including atoms, molecules, genes, cells, and organisms, 
  2. integrate factual and conceptual information into an understanding of scientific data by written, oral and/or visual communication. (This may include successful completion of a course-specific research project or a case study module),
  3. demonstrate proficiency and safe practices in the use of laboratory equipment and basic laboratory techniques; and
  4. apply principles of the scientific method to problems in biology in the collection, recording, quantitative measurement, analysis and reporting of scientific data
