Biology

The purposes of the biology major are to: (1) teach the fundamental concepts and methods of the biological sciences; (2) engage all students in science as it is practiced by developing their capacities to use and evaluate scientific knowledge; and (3) explore relationships of biology to other sciences and to problems of social, cultural, and intellectual concern.

By proper selection of biology and other science courses in consultation with a departmental advisor, the major in biology can prepare a student for graduate study and research in a wide range of areas including anatomy, biochemistry, bioengineering, biophysics, botany, cell biology, conservation biology, developmental biology, ecology, environmental sciences, immunology, marine biology, microbiology, molecular biology, mycology, physiology, virology, zoology, etc. The major in biology can also lead to a variety of careers in applied biology (medicine and agriculture and their allied fields) and science teaching.

Advanced Placement. Four (4) hours of biology major credit, designated as Biology 605, are automatically granted to students earning 4's and 5's on the Advanced Placement test. Students granted AP credit in biology who intend to major in biology are exempted from taking the introductory sequence (Biology 118, 119, 120) but must still complete the 27-hour minimum for the major, by earning 23 Biology credits in addition to the 4 granted as Biology 605. Students with AP credit may elect, if they so choose, to take either Biology 118 plus 119, or Biology 120, but not both. Students with AP credit must still take at least five laboratory courses.

Entry-Level Course Sequence Suggestions. Students with a strong high-school science background find taking Introductory Biology and Chemistry courses simultaneously in the first year both useful and challenging. Other students benefit greatly from taking only one of these courses during their first semester at Oberlin. Prospective Biology majors are urged to consult with a Biology faculty member during Freshman Advising Period to discuss these options.

Major. The biology major consists of 27 hours minimum in biology. Sixteen of these hours, including nine hours of advanced course work (defined as a biology course numbered 200 or above, except Biology 213/214, which forms part of the core), must be completed at Oberlin. In addition to the 27 hours in biology, additional cognate work is required (see below).

A. Required Courses

1. Core Biology Courses:
Biology 118 (lecture), 119 (lab), Organismal Biology, 4 hours; Biology 120 (lecture and lab) Genetics, Evolution and Ecology, 4 hours; Biology 213 (Cell and Molecular Biology, lecture only), 3 hours. N.B. Many advanced biology courses require Biology 214 (Cell and Molecular Biology, laboratory, 1 hour), so students are strongly advised to enroll in 214 as well as 213. Check the prerequisites for any course you contemplate taking.

2. Biology Laboratory Requirement:

Majors are required to take at least five laboratory courses or courses that include a laboratory. Biology 119 and 120 count as 2 of the 5 required courses. Majors can count one semester of research (Biology 501 or 502) towards the laboratory requirement. Each laboratory course or course that includes a lab counts as a single lab course, regardless of how often the laboratory section meets.

3. Cognate Course Work:

a. Chemistry 101 and 102 (or 103 in lieu of 101 and 102)

b. Chemistry 205

c. Four additional hours selected from the following: Calculus (MATH 131, 132 or 133), Chemistry (CHEM 254), Physics (PHYS 103), Statistics (MATH 113 or 114).

B. Additional Biology Courses. Up to three credit hours of a seminar and up to three credit hours of research, as BIOL 501 or 502, may be counted toward a Biology major. Honors candidates completing two full semesters of research may count up to 4 credit hours toward the major. Work done through Private Reading does not count toward completion of the major.

Other Courses. The following courses (including their laboratory components, when applicable) count toward the biology major:

1. All Neuroscience courses at the 200 and 300 level.

2. Environmental Studies 316 (Systems Ecology) and 340 (Environmental Systems Modeling).

3. Chemistry 374 (Biochemistry).

4. Geology 320 (Paleontology).

Minor. There is no minor offered in Biology.

Honors. Candidates for honors in biology enroll as seniors in Biology 501 and 502, carry out a research project in consultation with a faculty committee, write and defend a thesis based on completed work, and give a required research seminar. Students interested in this program should initiate a discussion of research possibilities with any member of the staff during the junior year. Students are not accepted formally into the honors program until their proposed research is reviewed by the department at the beginning of their first semester of research.

Off-Campus or Summer Study. The Department offers limited scholarships for summer course work at approved field (inland and marine) stations in the United States. Applications for these scholarships are invited early in the Spring Semester; awards are made in May. In general, students planning off-campus study are advised to consult first with their advisor, and then the Chairman to determine acceptability of courses to the major.

Transfer of Credit. Credits in biology earned elsewhere may be applied to the Oberlin biology major with the approval of the department chair, so long as 14 of the 27 hour minimum in biology, including 9 hours of advanced course work (defined above, under 'major'), are completed at Oberlin.

Winter Term. Among the topics for Winter Term projects that members of the Biology department are willing to sponsor are the following: Mr. Allen: projects relying upon genetic, molecular biological, and biophysical techniques to address cell physiological questions. Readings in the physiology of muscle and motile cells. Instruction and readings in Old Icelandic and Old English literature. Ms Bennett: intensive science review; pre-medical internship. Mr. Benzing: the technology of winemaking and viticulture; tropical biology. Mr. Braford: laboratory research in comparative neuroanatomy for students who have had Biology 320; neurobiology; evolution; systematics. Ms Cruz: projects involving comparative embryology, developmental biology, parasitoids, marsupial biology. Readings in the history of biology, philosophy of science, evolution. Ms Garvin: projects and readings in parasitology, entomology, ornithology, epidemiology, and ecology. Mr. Laushman: projects involving conservation biology, population genetics, and aquatic vascular plants. Mr. Levin: compiling and evaluating certain AIDS data for students who have done one course (with laboratory) in microbiology. Mr. Luck: laboratory research involving recombinant DNA technology for students who have had Biology 309. Ms McCormick: projects on the evolution of vertebrate auditory and lateral line systems; topics on the evolution of vertebrate structure. Mr. Miller: holistic health; new age/transformational subjects; psychic healing group project; new paradigms in science; noetic sciences. Ms Thornton: projects involving neuroendocrinology and behavioral neuroendocrinology. Ms Treichel: projects involving immunology, virology, or cancer; health career internships.

Preparation for Post-Graduate Education

Medical School, Dental and Veterinary Medicine. Most medical, dental, and veterinary schools require:

1. One year of General Biology with laboratory.

2. Two years of Chemistry with laboratory.

3. One year of Mathematics.

4. One year of Physics with laboratory.

5. One year of English.

Students planning careers in medicine should consult the Health Career Advisors, the Office of Career Services, and references in the Science Library for details.

Graduate Schools. Most graduate schools in biology expect a major in the biological sciences to include:

1. Two years of Chemistry with laboratory.

2. One year of Physics with laboratory.

3. College-level Mathematics (Calculus and Statistics).

4. Courses in Computer Science.

Certain deficiencies in course work may be made up in graduate school but generally not for graduate credit. Students planning to pursue an advanced degree should consult individual admission requirements of the schools and graduate departments in which they are interested. The qualifying examination for most graduate schools is the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) which consists of two parts, the general examination and an advanced component in biology. The majority of graduate schools require the General Examination for admission and there is variation with respect to the advanced examination in biology. Students are strongly urged to consult with members of the Biology Department in preparing for graduate work.
