115 Course Descriptions Biology ______________________________________________________ BIO102-A Introductory Biology 3 This is an introductory biology course designed for non-science majors. Major topics of study will include cell structure and function, cellular chemistry, inheritance, and evolution. Corequisite: BIO103-A BIO103-A Introductory Biology Lab 1 This course shall accompany BIO102-A. Corequisite: BIO102-A BIO105-A Introductory Biology 4 An introduction to basic biological principles with emphasis on topics and issues of current interest and applications of biology related to the medical, ethical, and social dilemmas of humans integration with the biosphere. The required laboratory will stress the process of science and exposure to living organisms. Topics to be considered are structure, function, and metabolism of cells, genetics, impact of molecular biology and genetic engineering, plants, animals, diversity, and evolution. BIO106-A Introductory Biology II 3 This course is a continuation of Introductory Biology I. The major topics to study include human anatomy and physiology, reproduction, plant biology, and ecology. Prerequisite: BIO102-A; Corequisite: BIO107-A BIO107-A Introductory Biology II Lab 1 This course shall be accompany BIO106-A. Prerequisite: BIO103-A; Corequisite: BIO106-A BIO114-A General Biology 1A 4 This course is an introduction to basic principles of biology. Topics include basic chemistry, cellular biology, and genetics. The general course goal is to provide students with a sound foundation in selected biological topics. This foundation will permit interested students to continue further studies in related areas of biology, and to enable students to become knowledgeable consumers of science. BIO115-A General Biology IIA 4 This course is a continuation of General Biology IA (BIO-114). Course topics include evolution, biological diversity, plant and animal anatomy and physiology and ecology. Prerequisite: BIO-114 BIO125-A Plant Biology 4 Plant Biology is designed for non-science majors interested in plants and plant-like organisms. Topics include classification, plant structure and function, development, metabolism, and heredity. Laboratory exercises complement each area of study. BIO130-A Animal Biology 4 Structure, function, and adaptation of major animal groups, from protozoa through the chordates (including evolutionary relationships). Topics include a survey of the systems, review of cellular concepts, and introduction to animal distribution, heredity, ecology and embryology. BIO146-A Genetics 3 This course is an introduction to genetics, topics included are: DNA, chromosomes, Mendelian genetics, mutations, molecular genetics, recombinant DNA, GMO’s, genetic engineering, molecular genetics and disease. At least one semester of biology should be completed before taking this class. Recommended: College biology class and high school chemistry. Prerequisite: BIO105 BIO151-A Nutrition 3 In this course you will learn a basic overview of the principles of nutrition. Discussion focuses on the major nutrients and their significance and utilization in the human body. Additional topics discussed include food trends, nutritional needs through the lifespan, weight management, stress management, and drug-food interactions. BIO154-A Human Biology 3 Human Biology is a study of biology which emphasizes the human body. Topics such as the cell, basic chemistry, human anatomy and physiology, genetics, human evolution and human ecology are included. Human Biology is designed for non-science majors or students requiring a review prior to taking Anatomy and Physiology. Corequisite: BIO155-A BIO155-A Human Biology Lab 1 This course shall accompany BIO154-A. Corequisite: BIO154-A BIO157-A Human Biology 4 Human Biology is designed for non-science majors or as a prerequisite for higher-level anatomy and physiology courses. It focuses on the following areas: the molecular and cellular basis of human life; the integration of humans and the biosphere; the structure and function of human tissues, organs and organ systems; and the principles of genetics and human development. Laboratory exercises complement each area of study BIO162-A Essentials of Anatomy & Phys 3 (Designed for health-related fields.) Prerequisites: One year of high school biology or one year of high school chemistry or CHM 112 Introduction to chemistry or instructor approval. Introduces the student to the structure, function, and organization of the human body and all body systems. (3, 0) BIO163-A Essentials of Anatomy and Physiology I 4 Human Anatomy and Physiology is a survey of the basic concepts of human anatomy and physiology. Emphasis is placed on the study of the structure and function of the major organ systems of the human body. BIO165-A Human Anatomy and Physiology I 3 This course is an advanced study of anatomy and physiology. The relationship between body structure and function and homeostasis forms the basis for the course. Pathological processes that result in dysfunction and disease are presented. Major topics include cell biology, histology, skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems. Corequisite: BIO167-A BIO167-A Human Anatomy and Physiology I Lab 1 This course shall accompany BIO165-A. Corequisite: BIO165-A
