The UW Life Sciences Program is not a degree program. We provide a series of 1000-3000-level courses for all life science majors and non-sciences majors.
Life Sciences courses introduce students to the fields of cell and molecular biology, genetics, ecology, and evolution, and provide a general overview of the diversity of life on the planet. Our courses offer a cutting-edge view of biology and biological research, which are taught by some of the most respected teachers at UW.
