BIOL 243/3.0 INFORMATION
This is an introductory statistics and data management course that focuses on biological applications and examples. For that reason, no other statistics course (including PSYC202) can be used as a substitute for BIOL243/3.0 in any of the Biology degree plans and programs.
BIOL243 is also a prerequisite for BIOL302 and BIOL303. To allow students who are non-majors in Biology acess to BIOL 302 and BIOL 303, we currently permit students who have taken PSYC202/3.0 to use this course as an alternative prerequisite. However, without the background obtained in BIOL243, such students will be disadvantaged and will probably need to do additional work to make up for shortfalls in their knowledge and use of statistics.
Please refer to the undergraduate calendar for additional information on the specific exclusions associated with BIOL243/3.0 and the role of this course in our different degree plans and programs.
