Start your Zoology Online Course Today
The Zoology online course offers a survey of the animal kingdom and animal-like protists from an evolutionary perspective. Major lines of evolution will be traced as characteristics of each animal group are compared and contrasted. The taxonomy, diversity, behavior, and ecology of all animal phyla will be studied with an emphasis on the functional anatomy of the major groups. Upon completion of this zoology online course, students will be proficient in classifying animal taxonomy and phylogeny, distinguish between major animal phyla and will be able to provide examples of major theories of evolution within the animal kingdom.
Note: For successful completion of this zoology online course, it is recommended that students are familiar with General Biology (BIOL 125) and Genetics (BIOL 225) or their equivalents.
Our Zoology course is a great addition to degree programs that are already underway. Students may also take this course to complete a different degree program not affiliated with Doane University. Doane's Open Learning Courses are not a part of any degree program at Doane University. If you are interested in starting a degree program at Doane, please visit our website at www.doane.edu.
