Scheduling of Biology majors courses

Students take Biology 21, 22, and 23 in sequence.  This is particularly important not only for the factual information presented in the sequence of courses but also in the development of critical thinking skills for applying concepts and analyzing and interpreting scientific data. 

Bearing this in mind, students should plan their time here at SMC looking at when each of these courses are offered throughout the year, melding this with the math, physics, chemistry, and general education courses that are necessary to transfer.  Below shows the number of sections of each course taught in the Fall and Spring semesters.  All courses are taught during the day with the exception of a single section of Biology 21 taught in the evenings in the Fall and Spring as a hybrid course.

Biology 21 seems to be the only impacted course.  Biology 22 and 23 fill each semester, but most students who wish to enroll manage  to do so.
