Biology Course Information

 

BIOLOGY

 

BIO 101 Introduction to Biology I                                      4 Introduction to Biology I is the first of a two-course sequence designed for non-science majors. It covers historical studies illustrating the scientific method, cellular structure, bioenergetics, cell reproduction, Mendelian and molecular genetics, and the survey of human organ systems. A 120 minute laboratory is required.

 

BIO 102 Introduction to Biology II                                   4
Prerequisite: BIO 101

Introduction to Biology II is the second of a two-course sequence for non-science majors. It covers evolutionary principles and relationships, envi­ronmental and ecological topics, classification, and a survey of biodiversity. A 120 minute laboratory is required.

 

BIO 103 Principles of Biology                                       4

      This is an introductory course for science and non-science majors. It covers physical, chemical, and biological principles common to all organisms. These principles are explained through a study of cell structure and function, cellular reproduction, basic biochemistry, cell energetics, the process of photosynthesis, and Mendelian and molecular genetics. Also included are the scientific method, basic principles of evolution, and an overview of the diversity of life with emphasis on viruses, prokaryotes, and protists. A 120 minute laboratory is required.

 

BIO 104 Principles of Biology II                                         4 Prerequisite: BIO 103

This course is an introduction to the basic ecolog­ical and evolutionary relationships of plants and animals and a survey of plant and animal diversity including classification, morphology, physiology, and reproduction. A 180 minute laboratory is required.

 

BIO 120 Medical Terminology                                          3 This course is a survey of words, terms and descriptions commonly used in medical arts. Emphasis is placed on spelling, pronunciation, and meanings of prefixes, suffixes, and word roots. No laboratory is required.

 

BIO 201 Human Anatomy & Physiology I                     4 Prerequisite: BIO 103

This course and BIO 202 cover the structure and function of the human body. Topics in BIO 201 include the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems. Also included is an orientation of the human body, basic principles of chemistry, a study of cells and tissues, metabolism, joints, and the senses. Associated biochemical phenomena are also presented. Dissection, histological studies, and physiology are featured in the laboratory experience. A 120 minute laboratory is required.

 

BIO 202 Human Anatomy & Physiology II                    4 Prerequisite: BIO 103 and BIO 201

This course and BIO 201 cover the structure and function of the human body. Topics in BIO 202 include the endocrine, circulatory, respiratory, digestive, excretory, cardiovascular, lymphatic, and reproductive systems. Also included is a study of basic nutrition, and the basic principles of water, electrolyte, and acid-base balance. Dissection, histological studies, and physiology are featured in the laboratory experience. A 120 minute laboratory is required.

 

BIO 211 Human Anatomy and Physiology For Health Occupations I          4 Prerequisite: As required by program.

This course is the first in a two-course sequence, which covers the basic structure and function of the human body. Tissues and the following organ systems are covered: integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, sensory, endocrine, circulatory, digestive, respiratory, excretory, and reproductive. Upon completion, students should be able to demonstrate a basic understanding of the funda­mental principles of human anatomy and physiol­ogy and their interrelationships. Laboratory is required.

 

BIO 220 General Microbiology                                          4 Prerequisite: BIO 103 (Recommended 4 semester hours of Chemistry).

This course covers the fundamental principles of Microbiology including historical perspectives, cell structure and function, microbial genetics, infectious diseases, immunology. Emphasized topics are distribution, physiology, culture, identi­fication, classification, roles in nature and medi­cine, and disease control of microorganisms. The laboratory experience includes micro-techniques, distribution, culture, identification, and control. Two 120 minute laboratories are required.
