Advanced Biology: Human Physiology & Genetics - Honors Course

STEM | Science Elective
Grade: 11-12
Credits: 1

Advanced Biology immerses students in study of the biological processes that control and regulate all life. Looking at DNA as life’s “blueprint,” students explore DNA’s role and use as a delivery device for the biological information that drives evolution, as well as its role in medicine, industry, and forensic science. Students engage in a series of labs and independent projects to prepare themselves for college-level work in science, biology, or a health-related field of study.

Prerequisite: Essentials of Biology, or permission of the instructor
