This course is a general introduction to biology and its principles, with a focus on the human body, public health issues, evolution, and the interactions of humans with the environment. The course will introduce the unifying principles of biology while examining the evolution, anatomy, physiology, and variations of the human body, and the physical and societal roots of disease. It will also emphasize the ways human health concerns affect broader social issues surrounding equity and diversity, and the ongoing impacts of human-related environmental alterations.
