Course Descriptions

BIOL201S Human Physiology 1: Control Systems - 3 Credits (3 hrs/wk lecture, 45 clock hours)
The anatomy and physiology of the cell and human biological control systems. Topics include cell structure and function, movement of molecules across cell membranes, homeostatic mechanisms and cellular communication, neural control mechanisms, snesory system, hormonal control systems, muscle physiology, and control of body movements.

BIOL203S Human Physiology II - 3 Credits (3 hrs/wk lecture, 45 clock hours)
The anatomy and physiology of the major organ systems of the human body. topics include the cardiovascular, respiratory, excretory, digestive, reproductive, and immune systems, and the components of blood.
Prerequisite: At least one first-year biology course with an emphasis on physiology or cell biolgoy or equivalent.

BIOL221 Anatomy 1 & Lab - 4 Credits (3 hrs/wk lecture, 45 clock hrs; 2 hr/wk lab, 30 clock hrs)
The basic concepts of human anatomy with an emphasis on the relationship between structure and function. Basic concepts include anatomical terminology, position and relationship as well as the normal gross anatomy of the musculoskeletal system and the spinal cord.

BIOL223 Anatomy 2 & Lab - 4 Credits (3hrs/wk lecture, 45 clock hrs; 2 hrs/wk lab, 30 clock hours)
The normal goss structures of the human brain (including special senses and the autonomic nervous system) and organ systems. Organ systems include cardiovascular, respiratory, lymphatic, endocrine, urinary, digestive, and reproductive. Also, structural interrelationships between organ systems and the inerrelationships between structure and funciton of organs and organ systems.
Prerequisite: BIOL221

BIOL302 Exercise Physiology - 3 Credits (3hrs/wk lecture, 45 clock hrs)
An applied discipline that combines knowledge of metabolic biochemistry, cellular and organ system physiology, and anatomic structure and fucntion in order to understand and explain physical and athletic performace. Introduction to the metabolic, muscular, and cardio-respiratory adaptations to both acute and chronic exercise in humans. Emphasis on learning and understanding major concepts in terms of normal physiologic responses in healthy individuals.
Prerequisite: BIOL203

CHEM201S Organic Chemistry I - 3 Credits (3 hrs/wk lecture, 3 credits, 45 clock hours)
Structure and bonding in organic chemistry, Isomerism and stereoisomerism in organic compounds. Chemistry of alkanes, cycloalkanes, alkenes, and alkynes. Aromatic compounds and mechanisms of aromatic substitution. Nucleophilic addition and substitution reactions. Chemistry of alcohols, ethers, aldehydes, and ketones.
Prerequisite: CHEM113 or equivalent

CHEM203S Organic Chemistry II - 3 Credits (3 hrs/wk lecture, 3 credits, 45 clock hours)
Chemistry of carboxylic acids and their derivatives, as well as amines and related nitrogen compounds. Applications of spectroscopic techniques in organic chemistry. Introduction to biochemistry, which will examine amino acids, carbohydrates, lipids, and nucleic acids. Structure and properties of proteins and enzymes.
Prerequisite: CHEM201 / 201S or equivalent

CHEM301 Biochemistry - 4 Credits (4 hrs/wk lecture, 60 clock hrs)
