Frequently Asked Questions

How is Biocore different from Bio/Zoo 151/152 or Zoo 101/102/ Bot130?

Biocore is a sequence of intro to intermediate honors courses at the 300-500 level that progress at a challenging pace.

Biocore courses go to greater depth and focus on problem solving, critical thinking, and scientific reasoning. Limited enrollment (140 each fall) allows for high instructor/student ratio and work in small learning community of honors students.
