Online Medical Biology II

BIOL 1011 Online

UNE Aca­d­e­m­ic Cal­en­dars | UNE Aca­d­e­m­ic Cat­a­log | Tech­ni­cal Require­ments

This online course is a four semes­ter hour course deliv­ered at a dis­tance and includes a vir­tu­al lab­o­ra­to­ry com­po­nent. It is designed for indi­vid­u­als with a bac­calau­re­ate degree who need a sec­ond semes­ter of biol­o­gy as a pre­req­ui­site to apply for admis­sion to a health pro­fes­sion pro­grams.

Grad­u­ate pro­grams that may require BIOL 1011: Online Med­ical Biol­o­gy II may include but are not lim­it­ed to:

  • Dietet­ics
  • Nurs­ing
  • Phys­i­cal ther­a­py
  • Physi­cian assis­tant
  • Nurse anes­the­sia
  • Phar­ma­cy
  • Vet­eri­nary med­i­cine
  • Den­tal med­i­cine
  • Med­i­cine

The over­all goal of this online course is to pro­vide the stu­dent inter­est­ed in the health pro­fes­sions with an intro­duc­tion to biol­o­gy that empha­sizes the con­cepts that will be impor­tant for, and pro­vide the basis for, the top­ics — con­sid­ered in bio­chem­istry, mol­e­c­u­lar biol­o­gy, cell biol­o­gy, phar­ma­col­o­gy, and phys­i­ol­o­gy — which the stu­dent will encounter in their pro­fes­sion­al stud­ies.

A conceptual approach

To achieve this goal, the course empha­sizes a con­cep­tu­al approach to the prin­ci­ples of biol­o­gy. The stu­dent is encour­aged to learn fac­tu­al mate­r­i­al with­in a con­cep­tu­al frame­work in order to achieve an under­stand­ing of basic bio­log­i­cal the­o­ry. By doing so, they will be able to apply this mate­r­i­al to their fur­ther stud­ies. Numer­ous exam­ples, large­ly relat­ing to human biol­o­gy and espe­cial­ly to human health and dis­ease, are pro­vid­ed to encour­age this process.

Emphasis on health sciences applications

The Online Med­ical Biol­o­gy II course con­tent con­sid­ers prin­ci­ples of evo­lu­tion as relat­ed to bio­log­i­cal thought, sur­veys the six king­doms and pop­u­la­tion biol­o­gy — plac­ing an empha­sis on health sci­ences appli­ca­tions — and dis­cuss­es sev­er­al “spe­cial top­ics” rel­e­vant to human biol­o­gy.

  • It is manda­to­ry for stu­dents enrolled in the course to order a lab kit.
  • The kit must be pur­chased direct­ly through Hands-on Labs and can­not be pur­chased sec­ond hand or from anoth­er ven­dor.
  • Stu­dents must com­plete both parts of every lab – the assigned exper­i­ment and the cor­re­spond­ing assign­ment online – to earn a grade for the lab.


The kits MUST BE ORDERED IMMEDIATELY UPON ENROLLMENT in order to ensure mate­ri­als are on hand for the start of the course. Review the HOL Return and Refund Pol­i­cy

Note: Kits can take 5–7 busi­ness days to arrive. Once you receive the kit, please use these direc­tions for reg­is­tra­tion.

Complete at your own pace

Work­ing at the pace typ­i­cal for a four semes­ter hour course, the aver­age stu­dent will com­plete the online course in approx­i­mate­ly 16 weeks. Many stu­dents are non­tra­di­tion­al stu­dents who have elect­ed an online course for flex­i­bil­i­ty. Since the course is self-paced, you may com­plete the course in less than 16 weeks.


BIO 1010 (Med­ical Biol­o­gy I) must be com­plet­ed before reg­is­ter­ing for this course. All pre­req­ui­site cours­es must have been com­plet­ed suc­cess­ful­ly with­in the past sev­en years.
