Biology 1 (BIO101) - Course Description

Biology 1 requires four weekends to complete. The accelerated biology classes are held on Saturdays and Sundays from 8:30am to 6:30pm.
(4 Semester Units, includes lab*)

Biology 1 course is a comprehensive examination of the human organism. It begins with a survey of the principles and structures characteristic of all living things. The remainder of the weekend biology course focuses on molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology, histology, and genetics.

ISP does not require students to complete any preliminary 'introductory' classes prior to enrollment in our weekend accredited college science program. Students can enroll immediately into ISP's Biology 1 class without taking 'Introduction to Biology'.

* If the college or university to which the student intends to transfer Integrated Science Program (ISP) courses requires 5 instead of 4 semester units per portion of a course (either 1 or 2), we offer 1 semester unit independent study courses for each formal course which provide empirically-based studies that enhance, deepen, and further integrate knowledge of the subject by developing different problem-solving skills and conceptual organization than those fostered in formal classroom and laboratory learning.
