PROGRAM-LEVEL LEARNING OUTCOMES

Biological Sciences Core

1. Demonstrate a working knowledge of the

biological taxonomic kingdom and phyla

divisions and classification of organisms

within that system.

2. Demonstrate an in-depth knowledge of the

key features and current issues related to the

various major theories of biological origins.

3. Demonstrate a working knowledge of the

key current issues in environmental biology

and ecology.

4. Analyze molecular structure and chemical

reactivity relationships within a chemical and

biological environment.

5. Demonstrate a working knowledge of cellular

structures and processes within cells.

6. Perform and interpret analyses of the various

modes of Mendelian inheritance.

7. Demonstrate a working knowledge of those

basic principles of physics, statistics, and

differential and integral calculus necessary

to the study and practice of research in the

biological sciences.

8. Effectively prepare written and oral

presentations from primary research literature

in the biological sciences.

9. Explain in accurate detail the molecular basis

of inheritance, including DNA replication,

transcription, translation, and the regulation

of these processes.

Natural History/Environmental Biology

1. Demonstrate a working knowledge of

vertebrate natural history, systematics, and

comparative anatomy, and their applications

to biological origins.

2. Effectively conduct selected field research

techniques in plant and animal ecology.

3. Demonstrate a working knowledge of the

interrelationship among species, population

dynamics, and the study of human impacts on

ecosystems as it relates to stewardship ecology.

Pre-Medicine/Pre-Dentistry

1. Explain in detail the mechanisms involved in

the replication and regulation of expression

of genetic information for prokaryotes,

eukaryotes, and viruses.

2. Describe the theoretical basis underlying and

perform basic laboratory procedures used in

molecular biology, biochemistry, microbiology,

and biotechnology.

3. Compare and contrast the initial pathways

of development found in organisms from

invertebrates to mammals.

4. Describe the underlying thermodynamic

principles that govern biochemical pathways.

Describe how biochemical pathways

are regulated and integrated to maintain

homeostasis.

5. Demonstrate a working knowledge of the

functions of each organ system and their

interrelationships in the whole organism to

maintain physiological homeostasis
