Explores the science behind disease including the underlying biology, impact on students daily lives, and accuracy of media coverage.
Introduces the concept of sex as it relates to reproduction, gender, and evolution. Focus will include impact on students' daily lives, and accuracy of media coverage.
Introduces the concept of biological molecules and discusses the role of these molecules in the genetics and cell biology of the organism.
Emphasizes the concept of biological molecules and discusses the role of these molecules in the genetics and cell biology of the organism though inquiry based laboratory exercises.
Introduces Biology majors to critical concepts in biological sciences on broad topics such as hypothesis testing, ethics in science, and use of humans and animals in research. Exposes students to faculty research in the Department of Biology, as well as provides exposure to invited research seminars.
An inquiry-based approach will be used to expose students to the skills necessary to integrate biological concepts across key content in sub-cellular and cellular biology.
Students that are invited to participate in this program will examine the unique and integrated nature of sub-organismal, organismal and supra-organismal sub-disciplines of the field of biology through discussions and demonstrations of the scientific method and experimental approaches used across breadth of biology. In the second semester students will continue discussion as a group and will begin to explore hands on research through research experiences with faculty mentors in their research lab.
A comprehensive survey of human physiology and pathophysiology of the major organ systems of the body from a molecular and cellular perspective. To provide students with a combined understanding of all organ systems of the body and their integration in supporting homeostasis while providing insight into the disease process and how it disrupts normal physiology.
Covers anatomical positions and gross anatomy of skeletal muscles, selected nerves, soft anatomy (including the digestive, respiratory, urogenital, excretory, and endocrine systems), systemic, pulmonary, and cardiac circulation, the hepatic portal system, and heart anatomy. Dissected specimens and human models are used.
Basic functions and related anatomy of a variety of organisms at various levels of organization. With laboratory.
Introduction to statistics including basic skills for summarizing data, basic probability theory and probability distributions necessary to understand and evaluate variation in environmental systems.
Individual reading and research projects for qualified underclassmen. Repeatable up to 3 semester hours. Pass/Fail.
Ecosystem; how people interact with their environment. Emphasis on population, pollution, disease, and land use.
This course examines the interdependence of humans and plants. Emphasis is on the plants that provide us with food, medicine, recreation, personal hygiene products and material goods as well as those that produce stimulating, intoxicating and psychoactive effects. Also included are the impacts of plants on human history, health and technology. Field trips will enrich the learning experience.
Strengthens the understanding of Mendelian genetics and introduces the topic of non-Mendelian genetics. Modern molecular genetics concepts of DNA replication, transcription, and translation, primarily in prokaryotes, will be included. An introduction to molecular genetic techniques will be provided. The laboratory will include experiments designed to characterize genetic crosses through phenotypic as well as molecular approaches in prokaryotes and eukaryotes.
The genetics laboratory will provide a demonstration of Mendelian genetics as well as an introduction into molecular genetic techniques through guided experiments as well as group research projects. Laboratory exercises will demonstrate DNA cloning, sequencing, restriction digestion and the polymerase chain reaction. Additional experiments demonstrating other aspects of genetics, gene regulation and molecular biology will be employed.
