Human Anatomy and Physiology Survey

BIO103

Overview of human anatomy and physiology designed for non-science majors. Emphasis on the relationships between the structures and functions in each body system as well as the interrelationships among all body systems in the maintenance of homeostasis. Laboratory work complements and reinforces lecture materials. 4 Credits (3 Lecture - 3 Lab) Prerequisite(s): MTH004 or Placement by Examination. Corequisite(s): ENL111.

Basic Botany

BIO111

Fundamentals of plant science, plant anatomy, physiology, taxonomy, reproduction, and genetics. 3 Credits (2 Lecture - 3 Lab)

Human Anatomy and Physiology I

BIO115

Medically oriented study of the structure and function of the human body, using homeostasis as a unifying concept. Topics include the skeletal, muscular, endocrine, integumentary, and reproductive systems with pertinent pathology discussion. Competency in these topics is demonstrated through oral discussion, written tests, and laboratory practical examinations. Intended for students specializing in health-related and science programs. 4 Credits (3 Lecture - 3 Lab) Prerequisite(s): Placement by Examination or MTH005 and Placement by Examination or RDG111. Corequisite(s): ENL111.

Human Anatomy and Physiology II

BIO125

Medically oriented study of the structure and function of the human body, using homeostasis as a unifying concept. Topics include the nervous, cardiovascular, lymphatic, circulatory, immune, respiratory, and digestive systems with pertinent pathology discussion. Competency in these topics is demonstrated through oral discussion, written tests, and laboratory practical examinations. Intended for students specializing in health-related and science programs 4 Credits (3 Lecture - 3 Lab) Prerequisite(s): BIO115.

Microbiology

BIO201

Biology of microorganisms (bacteria, rickettsiae, fungi, protozoa, helminthes) and viruses. Overview of the natural and applied roles of microorganisms and applications to the human. 4 Credits (3 Lecture - 3 Lab) Prerequisite(s): BIO115.

Genetics

BIO210

Overview of the major concepts of modern genetics, designed for the undergraduate biology major. Topics include classical (Mendellian) genetics, molecular and cell biology, and population genetics. College-level chemistry strongly recommended. 3 Credits (3 Lecture) Prerequisite(s): BIO125 and MTH160. As needed.

General Biology I

BIO220

Study of the fundamental processes of life. Emphasis on the behavior and interactions of molecules and cells as the foundation of modern medicine. Topics include the scientific method, cell structure and function, protein synthesis, metabolism, molecular genetics, genetic engineering, evolution, membrane properties, the cell cycle, cell communication, and the development of cellular and molecular laboratory techniques. 4 Credits (3 Lecture - 3 Lab) Prerequisite(s): BIO115 and CHM111 and ENL111 and MTH160 or BIO115 and CHM111 and ENL111 and MTH180 or BIO115 and CHM111 and ENL111 and MTH190 or BIO115 and CHM111 and ENL111 and MTH240. Corequisite(s): BIO125.
