  • Course description
    The Biology Division promotes and supports hands-on, interactive learning through laboratory and field courses, inquiry-based instruction, research activities, internships, and discussions/seminars concerning modern biological research. Students at AU have many opportunities to conduct research by becoming involved in faculty research projects, or by designing their own independent research projects. Many classroom laboratory activities blossom into student-directed independent study or ARGUS projects (Alfred Research Grants for Undergraduate Students).

    Required courses in the concentration establish a core of fundamental knowledge in biological and related sciences. Students build on this foundation through a variety of lecture, laboratory, field, and seminar courses that explore areas within biology from the basic level to current research topics.

    All biology majors are required to take

        * General Biology I and II (or Fast Track BIO)
        * Research Methods in Biology
        * Biostatistics
        * Genetics
        * General Chemistry I and II
        * Organic Chemistry
        * Two semesters of biology seminar

    Upper level requirements and electives are determined according to your career interests and your decision to focus on cell/molecular biology or organismal/ecological biology.
