|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.
|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||Basic Computer Concepts|
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.
This course is a calculus preparatory course in trigonometry with emphasis upon functions. The topics include angular measure, right triangle and unit circle trigonometry, trigonometric (circular) and inverse trigonometric functions and their graphs, trigonometric identities, conditional trigonometric equations, solution of right and oblique triangles, vectors, complex numbers in trigonometric form, applications, polar coordinates and graphs and parametric equations and graphs. The use of graphing calculators will be incorporated throughout the course. This course partially satisfies the mathematics requirement of S.B.E. 6A-10.030.
This is a course in precalculus algebra intended for the student who is planning to take trigonometry and the calculus sequence. Major topics include rational and other algebraic functions and their graphs, piecewise-defined functions, a review of exponential and logarithmic functions, conic sections, matrices and determinants, sequences and series, Mathematical Induction, the Binomial Theorem and applications. The use of graphing calculators will be incorporated throughout the course. This course may be taken concurrently with MAC 1114, Trigonometry. This course partially satisfies the mathematics requirement of S.B. E. 6A.10.030.
|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.
|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.
|SPC1608||Introduction to Oral Communication|
The purpose of this course is to improve the basic skills of speaking and listening. Class exercises emphasize preparing and delivering public speeches, speaking with clarity and variety and listening with literal and critical comprehension.
