|Completion of the A.A. General degree to include the following prerequisite courses for the major:|
|BSC2093C||Anatomy and Physiology I|
This is the first part of a two-semester course that investigates in detail the structure and function of humans. The course is primarily designed for students of healthcare professions, biology or physical education. We will utilize a "system" approach, examining each organ system at the cellular, tissue, organ and system levels and discuss interactions with other systems. Emphasis will be placed on the homeostatic rather than the dysfunctional individual. Lab fee required.
|BSC2094C||Anatomy and Physiology II|
This course is the second part of a two-semester course that investigates the structure and function of humans. The course is designed for students of healthcare professions, biology or physical education. We utilize a "systems" approach, examining each organ system at the cellular, tissue, organ and system levels and discuss interactions with other systems. Emphasis will be placed on homeostatic rather than dysfunctional individuals. Lab fee required.
|CGS1060C||Computer and Internet Literacy|
This course provides an introductory study of computer topics. Students completing this course will have a solid understanding of how to use a personal computer, access information using the Internet, send and receive email, manage computer files and utilize operating system tools. In addition, the student will receive hands-on experience with word processing software. This course utilizes classroom lectures and hands-on computer exercises. No prior experience with computers is assumed. 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.
|ECO2013||Principles of Economics (MACRO)|
This is an introductory course covering the nature, scope and methods of economics, economic concepts and economic institutions. Emphasis is placed upon production, consumption, determination of prices, distribution of income, fiscal policy, national income determinants, money and banking and comparative economic systems. This course partially satisfies the writing requirement of S.B.E. 6A-10.030.
|HUN1201||The Principles of Nutrition|
This course provides instruction in the scientific principles of nutrition, including the role of specific nutrients, digestion of each, absorption, metabolism and sources of the nutrients and requirements of the various age groups. Emphasis is on the factors influencing the ability of individuals to maintain good nutritional status.
This course is a study of the fundamental topics in advanced algebra with emphasis on applications, the understanding of the function concept and manipulative skills. Major topics include operations on algebraic expressions and complex numbers, solving polynomial equations and inequalities, absolute value equations and inequalities and rational equations and inequalities, applications, functions, exponents and logarithms, graphs of polynomial, exponential and logarithmic functions and systems of equations and inequalities. The use of graphing calculators will be incorporated throughout the course.
This fundamental course in Microbiology is designed to fulfill the needs of nursing students as well as other allied health majors. The course stresses the structure, nutrition, growth, control, metabolism and introductory genetics of bacteria. An introduction to fungi, parasites and viruses is included. Laboratory experience in techniques and primary isolation will be provided. Lab fee required.
This is an introductory course which surveys the field of psychology and basic principles and concepts utilized to understand human behavior. The major areas of study include development, learning, perception, motivation, emotions, personality, abnormal behavior, psychotherapy and testing measurements. This course partially satisfies the writing requirement of S.B.E. 6A-10.030. Some sections of PSY 2012 have service-learning components. Please refer to class notes in schedule of classes for details.
