Program Purpose The undergraduate Biology programs at the University of Utah provide students the knowledge base, skills, and resources needed to prepare them for careers in the Biological Sciences, or for enrollment and success in post-graduate education opportunities such as graduate school in the Biological Sciences and professional schools (including medicine, dental, veterinary, pharmacy, law) or other programs. Learning Outcomes: Evolution : Students will be able to apply the principles of natural selection and mechanisms of genetic change, including trait variation and heritability, to explain the observed diversity of life that has arisen over long-term as well as recent evolutionary time frames. Transmission, flow and interpretation of biological information: Students will be able to apply a knowledge of genetics, gene expression, growth and development, signal perception and transduction, and physiological regulation to explain how information is stored, transmitted and utilized in biological contexts. Structure and function: Students will be able to apply knowledge of molecular, cellular, and organismal structures to explain the diverse set of functions – ranging from the sub cellular to behavioral to ecological – that underlie the remarkable diversity of individual organisms as well as communities of organisms. Systems: Students will be able to explain how biological units interact to give rise to emergent properties at multiple levels of biological organization. These interactions range from the cycling of matter and energy at the sub cellular to organismal to biogeochemical scales to the interaction and interdependency of organisms, including humans, with their environment. Ability to apply the process of science: Students will be able to apply the process of science to identify knowledge gaps, formulate hypotheses, and test them against experimental and observational data to advance an understanding of the natural world. Ability to use quantitative reasoning: Students will be able to use mathematical and computational methods and tools to describe living systems and be able to apply quantitative approaches, such as statistics, quantitative analysis of dynamic systems, or mathematical modeling. Ability to participate in the interdisciplinary nature of science through clear communication and collaboration with other disciplines Students will be able to apply concepts and sub disciplinary knowledge from within and outside of biology in order to interpret biological phenomena, communicate with clear written and oral arguments, and work collaboratively to solve problems. Ability to explain the relationship between science and society, and engage Students will be able to evaluate the interactions between biology and society, including the societal impacts of biological research as well as public perception and decision-making about science, and clearly communicate biological concepts and their implications to broad audiences. concepts and their implications to broad audiences.
