BSC 2008C - The Biology of Behavior


3 credits
Prerequisites: (SB 1720 Testing Exemption or successful completion of all Developmental courses) and (BSC 1005, BSC 1005C  or high school biology) with a grade of "C" or better
This course is an overview of the human position in relationship to other animals. It uses a brief introduction of Mendelian genetics as a foundation for covering the process of evolution, sexual vs. asexual reproduction, animal behavior, and human behavior and reproduction. Topics include examples of evolution on Earth today and the science behind our understanding of how organisms have evolved through geologic time. The course culminates in how and why organisms survive and reproduce in their environment, followed by how humans fit many of the same patterns of behavior.
