BIOL 15b is one of the more basic biology courses that fulfills the science requirement. Often you’ll see non-science majors in the lecture hall alongside those newly embarking on a science concentration. This class touches on many of the same concepts found in the AP Biology curriculum, which explains why the registrar recommends against taking this course if you have taken AP Bio. Because there is a lot of material to cover, it is important that you remain focus throughout the session and try to absorb as much of it as possible. If you are taking this course with the intention of enrolling in BIOL 22a/b in the future, this course will provide an excellent foundation for those future courses. Be sure to save your notes and lectures, perhaps they will be useful in semesters to come!
Course Tuition: $2,236 plus a nonrefundable, once per summer $50 registration fee.
