This class is an in depth study of human anatomy and physiology. Anatomy is the study of the structure of living organisms from cell structure to organ systems. Physiology is the study of the mechanical and biochemical functions of the body. To illustrate the concepts discussed in the lecture portion of the class, lectures will be supplemented with laboratory exercises including microscopy and dissection. There is a $100 lab fee in addition to tuition and fees for this course. Prerequisite: Grade of C or better in BIOL 121 or CHEM 100, or qualifying examination score.
This class is an in depth study of the microbial organisms that affect human health. Lecture will cover the cellular and molecular biology of microbes, as well as give an historical perspective on microbiology. Finally, the students will learn the practical applications of microscopy and microbial identification. To illustrate the concepts discussed in the lecture portion of the class, lectures will be supplemented with laboratory and clinical application exercises and critical thinking case studies. There is a $100 lab fee in addition to tuition and fees for this course. Prerequisite: Grade of C or better in BIOL 121 or BIOL 230. Students are not permitted to enroll in Anatomy & Physiology and Microbiology within the same term.
An introductory course using exploration of principles and processes common to all living systems as a starting point for the study of human structure and function and the interrelationships between humans and the rest of the biosphere. Lectures will be supplemented with laboratory exercises.
