Biology

BIO 101: General Survey of Biology (L1 900)

Credits: 3:0:3
This course presents the fundamental principles of plant and animal life. Topics considered include biochemistry, cell structure, cell physiology, reproduction, genetics, evolution, and ecology common to both plants and animals.

BIO 102: General Biology (L1 900L)

Credits: 3:2:4
This course presents the fundamental principles of plant and animal life. Topics considered include biochemistry, cell structure, cell physiology, reproduction, genetics, evolution, and ecology common to both plants and animals. Weekly laboratory exercises illustrate and emphasize important biology concepts encountered in the text and classroom and include activities such as laboratory experiments, computerized virtual labs, and field observations.

BIO 103: General Zoology

Credits: 3:2:4
This course presents a survey of the animals from protozoa through the chordates. Representatives from each group will be studied with regard to morphology, physiology, and ecology. Laboratory scientific inquiry will emphasize the study of anatomy and physiology in biology using animals as the type of organism.

BIO 104: General Botany (L1 901L)

Credits: 3:2:4
This course is an introduction to the study of generalized plant morphology and physiology and a survey of the plant kingdom. Representatives from each major group are studied with regard to taxonomic criteria and ecology.

BIO 106: Environmental Biology (L1 905L)

Credits: 3:2:4
This is a laboratory science course developed around the study of natural and human-altered environments. It includes the study of the causes, effects, and possible control methods of various human-caused sources of pollution. Laboratory exercises involve field work as much as possible. Experiences will include biological sampling techniques, water testing, soil testing, comparison of several terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, and fundamentals of plant and animal classification.

BIO 107: Anatomy and Physiology I

Credits: 3:2:4
This course is the study of the structure and functions of the various organs-systems of the human body. The course emphasis will be on the skeletal, integumentary, muscular, nervous, and endocrine systems. Laboratory work will include microscopic study of the basic tissues as well as gross study of the organs that compose these systems.
Prerequisite: BIO 102.

BIO 108: Anatomy and Physiology II

Credits: 3:2:4
This course is a continuation of the study of the structure and functions of the various organs-systems of the human body. The course emphasis will be on the circulatory, respiratory, digestive, excretory, and reproductive systems. Laboratory work will include microscopic study of the basic tissues as well as gross study of the organs that compose these systems.
Prerequisite: BIO 107

BIO 112: Fundamentals of Nutrition

Credits: 3:0:3
This course is the study of the basic principles of nutrition, including nutrient needs, functions, food sources, nutrition and health, nutrition needs at different ages, and current topics in nutrition.

BIO 208: Microbiology

Credits: 3:0:3
This course is an introduction to the basic principles of microbiology with emphasis on identification, morphology, physiology, pathogenesis, and control of microorganisms, especially as relevant for health and health care.
Prerequisite: BIO 102

BIO 209: Medical Terminology

Credits: 3:2:4
This course is an introduction to the basic principles of microbiology with emphasis on identification, morphology, physiology, pathogenesis, and control of microorganisms, especially as relevant for health and health care.
Prerequisite: BIO 102
