If you are looking for biology transfer units and prefer focusing on “wild and wacky” animals rather than molecules, check out this fun, hands-on class, “Biology of the Living World” (BIO 29). Instructor Brad Balukjian, who recently moved from Laney to teach this class for the first time at Merritt, offers a student-centered, active teaching philosophy, field trips, and “no boring lectures allowed.” The course satisfies the life and natural sciences requirement for transfer students and for Merritt’s AA/AS Degrees. Dr. Balukjian is an entomologist (which means he studies bugs!) and has even had an insect named after him! He also writes for National Geographic.
