Foundations Biology Course

Yale’s Foundations Biology Course is a year-long interdepartmental biology sequence consisting of four half credit modules. The series provides an excellent interdisciplinary biology foundation for students considering careers in the biological sciences or health sciences. The biology sequence aims to not only teach students biology content, but also to train them how to think critically, read scientific literature, interpret data, and understand scientific research methods through evidence-based teaching practices. BIOL 101-104 instructors and course coordinators are committed to providing an inclusive environment through the series and provide a range of resources, including enrichment sessions, teaching scholar-led discussion sections, Piazza forums, and peer tutors, to ensure that all students have access to the resources they need to succeed.
