Biology Mission, Goals, and Objectives
1. Students will understand the underlying principles of biology and possess a background in the supporting disciplines.
- demonstrate how evolution is a fundamental principle of biological phenomena
- describe the basic units of structure and function of living things
- analyze the dynamic nature of information flow and energy transformations
- explain how living systems are interconnected and interacting
- synthesize the above concepts across multiple systems (from cells to ecosystems)
2. Students will be proficient researchers.
- use the scientific method to develop experiments that will include ethical considerations
- analyze models and simulations to understand biological concepts
- illustrate the interdisciplinary nature of science
- demonstrate the ability to collaborate with their peers
3. Students will use analytical reasoning and synthesize ideas effectively.
- effectively apply quantitative skills in research
- employ biological techniques appropriate to field
4. Students will be effective communicators.
- communicate clearly and effectively well-integrated findings to in an oral presentation
- communicate scientific ideas effectively in writing using appropriate references and data collected
- communicate the role science plays in society
