BSCI
Biological Sciences Program Department Site
BSCI courses are offered by the Biological Science Program and individual College of Computer, Mathematical and Natural Sciences departments, as indicated.

The sponsoring department for each course is provided in the course listing. Consult the sponsoring department if you have questions about an individual course (sponsoring departments BIOL - Department of Biology, 2227 Biol-Psyc Building; BSCI - Biological Sciences Program, 1322 Symons Hall; CBMG - Department of Cell Biology and Molecular Genetics, 1219 H.J. Patterson Building; ENTM - Entomology, 4112 PLS Building).

Registration in course sections which begin with "SES*" is restricted to students admitted into the Science in the Evening Program, administered through the Office of Extended Studies. For complete information, visit: http://oes.umd.edu/index.php?slab=sie, e-mail oes@umd.edu , or call 301-405-7762.

The following courses may involve the use of animals. Students who are concerned about the use of animals in teaching have the responsibility to consult the instructor prior to course enrollment to determine whether animals are to be used in the course, whether class exercises involving animals are optional or required, and what alternatives, if any, are available.

The College of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences enforces course prerequisites. Students who do not meet the course prerequisites will be administratively dropped from the course.

BSCI103M
(Perm Req)
The World of Biology
Credits: 4
Grad Meth: Reg, P-F
CORE: LL
Additional information: Not acceptable for degree requirements in Biological Sciences, Chemistry, or Biochemistry.
