  • BI-203

    Human Biology/Lab

    This course includes a study of the structural and functional relationships of human organisms. Emphasis will be placed on both the normal and abnormal functioning of each system.
  • BI-204

    Sci. in Perspective:Biology

    This course explores the basic principles of life for students who, as informed individuals, will need to develop their awareness of the biological aspects of personal and societal choices. Emphasis will be placed upon women in relation to the themes of evolution, organization, ecology, and the societal impact of biotechnology.
  • BI-209

    Intro.Microbiology/Lab

    This course provides the student of biological sciences with an introduction to microbiology and some of its applications. The major topics are: structure, function, taxonomy, and growth of prokaryotes and eukaryotes; microbial metabolism; prokaryotic genetics; viruses; the role of microbes in disease and host defenses; and microbial ecology. The laboratory will study the practice and principles of microbial analysis, characterization, and identification. Prerequisite: BI 104 or instructor permission
  • BI-210

    Cell Biology/Lab

    This course will focus on the structure and function of eukaryotic cells, including membrane structure and function, protein trafficking, cell signaling, cell cycle control, cytoskeleton and motility, neurophysiology, and tissue biology. Laboratory exercises include cytochemistry, protein and receptor analysis, and organelle isolation and characterization. Prerequisite: BI 209 or instructor permission
  • BI-211

    Pathophysio.& Nutri.Therapy

    This course examines selected pathophysiologic concepts, including mechanisms of disease causation; immune processes; cellular growth and proliferation; injury and metabolic stress; and dysfunctions of the circulatory, respiratory, gastrointestinal, urinary, nervous, and endocrine systems. Students will also consider risk factors and physiological adaptation to various disease conditions. Course emphasizes medical nutrition therapy in acute and chronic disease. Prerequisites: BI 105 and BI 106, NU 205, CH 101 and CH 102. A grade of C- or above must be earned in all prerequisites.
  • BI-212

    Pathophysiology

    This course is an introduction to the basic concepts of pathophysiology. Students will examine the phenomena that cause and produce alterations in human physiologic function and the resulting human response. Upon completion of the course, students will understand pathophysiological changes, including how pathological processes are manifested, progress in the body, and primary and secondary effects. The course is based on illness and disease within a systems framework across the lifespan. Prerequisite: A minimum grade of C in BI 106 or permission of the instructor
