Genetics is the study of heredity and how traits are passed from one generation to another, how these traits are affected by environmental factors, and the molecular basis for these traits. It requires a knowledge of both Biology and Chemistry to fully understand the concepts presented.
This course is an extensive and challenging course on Genetics. If you are not familiar with standard biology concepts, you may wish to enroll in a general biology course and complete it prior to beginning this course.
This Online Endorsement Course meets the Utah State Science Endorsement Course Requirements for:
- Biology: Heredity and/or Genetics
Additionally, the online science endorsement courses require participants to practice the science lessons in either a classroom setting or with a group of at least five individuals (can be family, friends, neighbors, etc.). In signing up for this course, you may need to be able to have weekly access to one of these two settings to complete assignments.
Upon successful completion, the participants will receive 3.0 Southern Utah University Credits for EDUC 9999 Science: Genetics (included in the cost of the course).
