Overview

Student Learning Outcomes

  • Students of the Biology at University of South Dakota will design, evaluate, and implement a strategy to answer an open-ended question or achieve a desired goal.
  • Students will recognize when there is a need for information and identify, locate, evaluate and effectively and responsibly use and convey that information to address the need or problem at hand.
  • Students will interact with other students and evaluate the effort put into team tasks, interactions with others, and the quantity and quality made to team discussions.
  • Students will comprehensively explore issues, ideas, artifacts and events before accepting or formulating an opinion or conclusion, and combine or synthesize existing ideas, images or expertise in original ways reflecting a high degree of innovation, divergent thinking, and risk taking.
  • Students will be able to systematically explore issues, objects or works through the collection and analysis of evidence that results in informed conclusions or judgments, and break down complex topics or issues into parts to gain a better understanding of them.
  • Students will demonstrate that they have developed understanding of core concepts appropriate to biology.  Students are expected to demonstrate basic understanding of five core concepts deemed relevant to all biology students: Evolution, Structure/Function Relationships, Information Flow, Energy Transformations, and Interactions of Systems.    Understanding as it relates to each specialization (either (a) Conservation & Biodiversity, or (b) Physiology, Cell & Molecular Biology) will be assessed in the courses particular to that specialization.
  • Students will demonstrate their ability to apply the processes of science.
