Biology is a natural science concerned with the study of life and living organisms, including their structure, function, growth, evolution, distribution and taxonomy. Modern biology is a vast and eclectic field, composed of many branches and subdisciplines.

Biology is a General Education requirement for degrees in the Science and Health Department.


Chemistry is the branch of science that deals with the identification of the substances of which matter is composed; the investigation of their properties and the ways in which they interact, combine and change; and the use of these processes to form new substances.

UC Clermont's Science and Health division requires this class as part of the General Education requirements for their degree options.
