An introduction to cellular and molecular biology. Major topics include the biochemical basis of life, cell biology, photosynthesis, respiration, mitosis, meiosis, genetics, DNA structure and replication and protein synthesis. Students engage the scientific method by designing, conducting and evaluating laboratory experiences that include selected topics in cell structure and function, enzymes, respiration, photosynthesis, genetics and molecular biology. NOTE: Students may receive credit for BIO 119 or BIO 126, but not for both.
This course is an introduction to organismal biology with a focus on evolution, the diversity of life and ecology. Major topics include the processes and outcomes of microevolution, macroevolution and the history of life, a survey of the major groups of eukaryotic organisms, basic plant and animal structures and their functions, and ecology. Students engage the scientific method by designing, conducting and evaluating laboratory experiences that include selected topics in seedless plants, seed plants, invertebrates, chordates, animal behavior, ecology and evolution. Field-based lab experiences train students to observe, collect, measure and monitor organisms in the wild.
An introduction to the scope, components, development, effects, and future of the hospitality industry.
Topics include background on industry structure and overviews of specialized areas relating to the
management of food service, lodging, travel, and event planning operations.
This course is designed to be an introduction to the biology of microorganism. The emphasis is on the
specific properties of microorganisms and their relation to disease.
A preparation for MAT 201 and the physical sciences. Students study principles, properties, and
applications of functions and their graphs. They revisit functions introduced in MAT 107 and expand
their knowledge of them. The course focuses heavily on circular trigonometric functions and introduces
conic sections. Laboratory activities place particular emphasis on the use of functions to model real
problems. Computers and/or graphing calculators are used to enhance the study of mathematics.
Prerequisites: A grade of C- or better in MAT 107 or a score of 71 or higher on the College Level Math
placement test; ENG 090 and ENG 094 (COL 090), or satisfactory placement test scores.
