  • Welcome Class of 2019 | Department of Biological Sciences
    Program FSP faculty give a history and overview of the program that give students the opportunity to conduct original ecological research at field stations in Costa Rica and the Caribbean Independent Research for Credit Maximilian Jentzsch 15 talks about doing research for credit BIOL 95 96 97 How Do I Find a Research Lab Maximilian Jentzsch 15 talks about tools for finding a research lab and how he found a lab How to choose your first biology class at Dartmouth For the 2015 fall term there are several choices Biology 2 Biology 11 or one of three foundation courses Biology 12 Cell Structure and Function Biology 14 Physiology or Biology 16 Ecology For many the decision will be to whether to take Biology 11 or a foundation course Here are some considerations regarding these choices Biology 11 versus a Foundation Course Subject matter Choose a course that is of high intellectual interest to you Nothing begets academic success like being genuinely interested in the subject matter Read the course descriptions for BIOL 11 each offering has a different intellectual theme customized by individual faculty to be timely and engaging BIOL 11 generally spans a broader spectrum of the science of biology than individual foundation courses The content of the foundation courses is designed to cover core knowledge within the topic area that every biologist should possess Work load Both BIOL 11 and the foundation courses have rigorous fast moving lectures associated with technical readings and problem solving The foundation courses also have a laboratory component which substantially increases the contact hours and makes the foundation courses considerably more demanding than BIOL 11 Probability of scholastic success BIOL 11 by virtue of not having a laboratory component permits students to spend more hours per week gaining a mastery of the lectures and associated materials Overview of the Biology Placement Advisory test To help you decide which Biology course is an appropriate starting point we offer the Biology Placement Advisory Test The Biology Placement Advisory Test is a 60 minute test that contains 30 multiple choice questions that cover central concepts in molecular biology cell biology genetics and evolutionary biology The test must be completed within one hour in a single sitting You will be given only one opportunity to take the Biology Placement Advisory Test once you complete the test you will not have a second opportunity to take it We recommend that all students that are considering taking Biology at Dartmouth complete this test As the name suggests the result of the Biology Placement Advisory Test is advisory not binding Since there is no formal placement associated with the Biology Placement Advisory Test the score does not appear on your placement record in Banner Student If you are interested in studying Biology at Dartmouth we strongly suggest that you take the Biology Placement Advisory Test to help you decide which Biology course is most appropriate for you to begin study of Biology at Dartmouth For the members of the Class

    here Please refer to the online ORC for Biology course numbers and descriptions The department has also posted syllabi from many of our courses that you may find helpful in selecting courses For a current listing click here Prerequisites BIOL 11 CHEM 5 and CHEM 6 or equivalent and one Quantitative Course from among BIOL 29 COSC 1 COSC 5 ENGS 20 EARS 17 MATH 4 MATH 8 or above MATH 10 or equivalent also satisfies the quantitative requirement Students who have completed BIOL CHEM 8 and 9 will have fulfilled the prerequisite requirements of BIOL 11 and CHEM 5 but not of CHEM 6 If BIOL 29 is taken as a prerequisite it cannot be used to satisfy course requirements in your area of concentration Three Foundation Courses To complete the major you must complete three of the Foundation courses listed below each of which has a laboratory component The Foundation courses may be taken in any order and you do not have to complete all three before you begin taking courses numbered 20 or above However please note that courses numbered 20 or above have at least one Foundation course as a prerequisite You may elect to take more than three Foundation courses and apply those additional Foundation courses toward your area of concentration Bio 12 Cell Structure and Function Bio 13 Gene Expression and Inheritance Bio 14 Physiology recently renumbered to Bio 30 and then returned to Bio 14 Bio 15 Genetic Variation and Evolution Bio 16 Ecology For the class of 2016 Bio 30 may be counted as a Foundation course 6 more courses that comprise your Area of Concentration In consultation with your Biology advisor you will build an area of concentration that is composed of six more Biology courses Bio 12 97 It is possible to count up to two advanced level courses from other departments in your area of concentration however only the second term of Organic Chemistry may be counted Your advisor will give you guidance on which courses may be appropriate To satisfy the culminating experience requirement one of the six courses must be a Biology course numbered Bio 50 or above Although only one course at this level is required we strongly encourage you to take more than one of these courses these are small seminar style courses that focus on a particular topic Because they are structured differently they offer students a refreshing alternative to the more traditional lecture style courses For a List of Possible Areas of Concentration Suggested Courses and Advisors click here Please keep in mind that this list is not rigid or exhaustive The courses listed for each area are suggestions to help you get started Students are not required to limit themselves to courses listed under a single area It is also possible to engineer an area of concentration that is not listed Any Biology faculty member may serve as your advisor even if they are not listed under a specific area of concentration
