Student Learning Outcomes

Biology AS Degree

  1. Demonstrate the correct operating procedures in the use of common lab equipment such as compound microscopes, spectrophotometer, pH meter, electrophoresis gel apparatus, micropipetters, and centrifuges.
  2. Construct, for analytical purposes, appropriate graphs from raw experimental data.
  3. List common laboratory safety guidelines.
  4. List and briefly explain the main concepts of modern evolutionary theory.

Biology General Education Focus

  1. Correctly operate common scientific laboratory equipment such as compound microscopes, pH meters, and spectrophotometers.
  2. Demonstrate an understanding of the scientific method by applying this approach to experimental situations and evaluating the meaning of experimental outcomes.
