Biology Learning Opportunities

Chemeketa's biology program offers fun and exciting way to learn both inside and outside of the classroom.

Field Experiences

You can participate in field experiences to benefit learning and deepen your knowledge of topics you are studying in class. Many biology courses at Chemeketa include one or more field trips-

  • BI101
  • BI103
  • BI131
  • BI133
  • BI143
  • BI211
  • BI213

Cadaver Lab

Chemeketa’s cadaver lab contains four cadavers that have been dissected to show different structures and systems of the human body. You will study our cadavers when you enroll in the BI231-233 Anatomy and Physiology course sequence.

Summer Cadaver Dissection

Once you have completed BI231 and BI232, you can apply to complete our summer Human Dissection (BI235) class where you help to dissect and prepare new cadavers for the next academic year. For information about this course or to apply, please contact Joe Bean.

Science Study Lab

You can take advantage of the Science Study Lab to study anatomy and physiology models, view prepared slides under a microscope, or review lab materials as provided by your instructor. You can use the lab free, but you must register using the CRN each term. You can find the CRN and lab schedule by including non-credit classes in your class search.

Aquatic Ecology Lab

The Aquatic Ecology Lab on the Salem Campus provides opportunity to study simulated wetlands and how water quality is impacted, along with freshwater aquatic life.

Active Learning Center

You can use the Active Learning Center in Building 8 as a place to meet with a study group or study independently. Some resources are provided as well as close proximity to faculty offices.
