Group II: Life Sciences (3 hours)

Main Content

Group II Science: Life Sciences

Science courses provide information about fundamental scientific laws and principles and the relevance they play in a technological society. These courses enhance perceptions of their physical and biological environment, highlight the interdependence and nature of humans in that environment, and lead to an understanding of scientific processes and methods as reliable means of inquiry. Core courses in science must have a laboratory component that illustrates scientific principles in a practical, non-abstract, hands-on manner; that explores the concrete phenomena that comprise the science discipline's data base; that illustrates the way day-to-day science is practiced; and that encourages students to recreate the progression of investigative steps through a scientific method.

All University Core Curriculum courses and Advanced courses must include a 2 hour per week laboratory session.
