Overview

Are you interested in enrolling in a college or university program, but need to upgrade your academic qualifications? The College/University Prep classes prepare students to meet academic requirements for entry into college and applied degree level programs.

Biology, chemistry and physics courses offered at the 091 level satisfy the science entry requirements for most college level programs, while 198 level courses satisfy the entry requirements for most applied/collaborative degree programs. (Note that the prerequisites for these 198 level courses are often the 091 level courses.)

If you are interested in applying to an institution other than Seneca, and you don't have the required high school credits, then the prerequisites required can be from college courses taken over 2 semesters, such as intro and advanced biology (BIO091 and BIO198), etc. These will be considered as Grade 12U equivalents, but they are not Ministry of Education approved credits. Therefore, keep the course outlines and addenda for case-by-case reviews.

Courses

BIO091
Biology
Availability
 

Prerequisite(s):

Grade 11 or higher math skills required

This course is an introduction to the characteristics and functions of human biological systems, cells, tissues, organs, and various organ systems. Structure, function and the maintenance of homeostasis are explored in relation to health. Students examine anatomical models and/or engage in laboratory exercises and/or investigate through computer simulation. The students complete a capstone research project which is presented at the end of the course.
