Section Description

BCOR 12 is the second semester introductory biology course for life science majors, focusing on ecology, evolution, and diversity. It will cover topics in the mechanisms of Mendelian genetics, Darwinian evolution, the history and diversity of life, ecological relationships among organisms, and conservation biology.

Section Expectation

This course consists of three weekly lectures in a small (48) capacity classroom, and one weekly laboratory. We encourage and expect in-class participation. Weekly laboratory exercises involve group and individual work. Students should expect to spend 3-5 hours per week on coursework outside of class, with additional time for exam preparation. We will use the same textbooks as BCOR 11.


Grade assessment consists of mid-term exams, weekly homework, in-class participation, and laboratory assignments. The laboratory component counts for about one quarter of the total points, and students must pass both lecture and lab to pass the course.
