A.A. Degree, General
Prerequisite Courses for the Major, Marine Biology
Subplan Code: SCI-MBIO
The Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree is designed for transfer to an upper-division public college or university in the state of Florida. Students will complete the A.A. General degree, including common program prerequisites for their program of choice.
The following sample courses are listed for illustrative purposes only, are based on the state of Florida common prerequisites manual and university transfer counseling manuals, and are subject to change without warning. Many universities have unique additional requirements for entry to the major. Students must work with Student Affairs advisors, counselors or specialists to make sure required courses are taken and entry requirements are met for the college/university program of their choice.
All students must consult with their Student Affairs advisors to ensure that their degree programs contain the appropriate courses and prerequisites for their selected baccalaureate degree program.
Students may also refer to the online A.A. Transfer Evaluation through www.FLVC.org for more information on their transfer program of choice.
|Completion of the A.A. General degree to include the following prerequisite courses for the major:|
|BSC1010C||General Biology I|
This course is primarily for science majors or students with a strong biology background. It is a study of the molecular and cellular composition and function of living organisms. Emphasis will be given to structure, chemical metabolism and genetic mechanisms. Laboratory illustrates basic biological principles. Lab fee required.
|BSC1011C||General Biology II|
A continuation of General Biology I, this course is designed for science majors or students requiring a full year of biology. Emphasis will be given to evolutionary relationships of living organisms. Structure, form and function of both plants and animals will be studied and ecological principles summarized. Required laboratory will correlate with lecture topics. Lab fee required.
|CHM2045C||General Chemistry I|
This course serves as the first semester of the two-semester general chemistry sequence. Topics covered include problem-solving, atomic and molecular structure, chemical formulas and nomenclature, chemical reactions, stoichiometry, thermochemistry, bonding models, gas laws, solutions and other selected topics. Laboratory experiments are chosen that support these topics. Lab fee required.
|CHM2046C||General Chemistry II with Qualitative Analysis|
This course serves as a continuation of CHM 2045C. Topics covered include chemical bonding models, properties of solutions, thermodynamics, reaction kinetics, chemical equilibrium, electrochemistry and nuclear chemistry. The course stresses integration of chemical knowledge. The laboratory is primarily qualitative analysis. Lab fee required.
|CHM2210C||Organic Chemistry I|
This course provides a basic introduction to all organic functional groups and nomenclature followed by detailed treatment of the relationship between structure and reactivity of organic molecules. Other topics include stereochemistry and synthesis. Lab fee required.
|CHM2211C||Organic Chemistry II|
This course provides a continuation of CHM 2210C. Topics covered include the chemistry and reactions of alcohols, ethers, sulfur compounds, aromatic compounds, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids and amines. Various types of spectroscopy will be covered. Emphasis will be on reactivity, mechanisms and synthesis. Lab fee required.
|MAC2311||Analytic Geometry and Calculus I|
This is a first course in analytic geometry and the theory and application of calculus. Selected topics include a review of functions, limits and continuity, the derivative, differentiation of algebraic and transcendental functions and their inverses, the Mean Value and Intermediate Value Theorems, extrema and graph sketching, area and the definite integral, anti-differentiation and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus and integration of transcendental functions and their inverses. The graphing calculator will be used throughout the course. Students should ask the instructor which calculator will be used. This course partially satisfies the mathematics requirement of S.B.E. 6A-10.030.
|MAC2312||Analytic Geometry and Calculus II|
This course is a continuation of MAC 2311. Selected topics include conics, translation and rotation of axes, techniques of integration, arc length and other applications of the definite integral, polar coordinates, indeterminate forms and improper integrals, infinite sequences and series and Taylor's Formula. The graphing calculator will be used throughout the course. Students should ask the instructor which calculator will be used. This course partially satisfies the mathematics requirement of S.B.E. 6A-10.030.
|PHY1053C||General Physics I|
This course contains a descriptive and quantitative study of kinematics, mechanics, energy and applications of mechanics. This course meets the requirements for professional and technical students needing an algebra-based physics course. Lab fee required.
|PHY1054C||General Physics II|
This course contains the descriptive and quantitative study of electricity, magnetism and applications of electromagnetism. This course meets the requirements for professional and technical students needing an algebra-based physics course. Lab fee required.
|PHY2048C||Physics with Calculus I|
This physics course is designed for science, engineering and mathematics majors. Topics studied are kinematics, mechanics and applications of mechanics. Lab is included. Lab fee required.
|PHY2049C||Physics with Calculus II|
This physics course is designed for science, engineering and mathematics majors. Topics studied include electricity, magnetism and topics of electromagnetism. Lab fee required.
