|BIOL 1190 - Introduction to Evolutionary Biology|
Prerequisite: high school biology or higher.
This course provides a framework for understanding the concepts of evolutionary biology. It offers an overview of the subject by focusing on the underlying mechanisms that drive change in biological form and function through natural selection. Students will explore the role of ecology, genetics, and development as modulators of change. Special topics will include origins of life, plant and animal evolution, human evolution, evolution of sex, social and behavioral evolution, and infectious disease, as well as alternative views on origins and the socio-political consequences of this theory. This is an elective biology course intended for both science and non-science major students pursuing degrees in biology, healthcare behavior, or education.
