Biology 125 is an introduction to biology offering a general survey of the ecosystems and diversity of life in the marine environment. The course includes an introduction to the sciences of geological, chemical and physical oceanography as the basis to understand the environment where marine organisms exist. A comparative approach is used to learn about the physiological and anatomical adaptations of different marine organisms to their environment. Aspects of the three major areas of biology, evolutionary, cell and molecular theory are addressed throughout the course.

Biology 126 is an introductory science laboratory offering a general survey of the diversity of life in the marine environment and an introduction to some of its major ecosystems. The laboratory exercises utilize the comparative method in order to study the anatomy, physiology and evolution of some of the major phyla of marine organisms.
