BIOL 99: Preparation for Biology (3 Credits)
This course is designed for the student who does not possess an adequate chemistry and biology background to enroll in BIOL 105, BIOL 111 or BIOL 201. This course will include selected inorganic chemical concepts, biological molecules and their reactions, cellular structure and function and an overview of body systems.
BIOL 101: Biological Science (4 Credits)
This is a one semester lecture/laboratory course designed for non-science majors to overview the commonalities of life on earth. This course includes a study of the cell and energy flow; maintenance, coordination and reproductive mechanisms of heredity and evolution; relationship of humans to their environment; and the impact new biological technologies may have on the future. Does NOT count toward a science or biology major.
BIOL 201: Human Anatomy (4 Credits)
This course is a lecture and laboratory course which provides a detailed study of all human body systems. The primary emphasis is on anatomic structures with a fundamental understanding of physiology. It is strongly recommended that the student have successfully completed one year of high school chemistry or CHEM 100 prior to enrollment.
BIOL 202: Human Physiology (4 Credits)
This course is a lecture and laboratory course that provides an introduction to the major concepts and homeostatic mechanisms necessary for a fundamental understanding of normal human physiology. General principles covered are cellular membrane function, electrophysiology, feedback mechanisms and metabolism. Also included is an analysis of the properties and interrelationships of major organ systems and a brief introduction to selected disease processes.
