Course Description: This four credit course is designed to give students who are non-science majors a solid foundation in the basic principles and unifying concepts of biology. Students develop an understanding of science, the nature of scientific inquiry, and how evolution explains the unity and diversity of all life on Earth. The course focuses on common features that all organisms (living things) share, as well as their unique characteristics. The “basics” of living things are explored: their biochemistry, structure, classification, ecological role, genetics, and evolution.
Qualifications: PhD or MS in Biology, with a varied academic background in the field and two full year's
minimum college teaching experience.

BIOL 124 - Biology I and Lab (two sections open)
Days/Times: MWF 11:00 AM-11:50 AM; or MWF 12:00 PM-12:50 PM (lecture) and W 9:00 AM-10:50 AM or F 1:00 PM-2:50 PM (lab)

Course Description: This is the first semester of a two-semester Biology sequence intended for biology/science majors or students looking to transfer laboratory science credits. Biology I concentrates on the molecular aspects of biology, cell structure and function, homeostasis, energy transformations, and genetics. This laboratory component is intended to provide students with experiential learning in support of concepts and principles introduced in the lecture class.
Qualifications: PhD or MS in Biology, with a varied academic background in the field and two full year's
minimum college teaching experience.

BIOL 132 – Anatomy & Physiology I with lab (three sections open)

Course Description: This four-credit lecture/lab course is designed for first-year students preparing for a career in the medical field. Emphasis will be on anatomical terminology, fundamental biochemistry, and structure and function of the following components of the human body: cells, tissues, integument, skeleton, joints, muscles, and nervous system. The laboratory portion of the course complements and reinforces the lecture through the use of additional resources, focusing on closer examination of the body’s components.
Qualifications: MS in Biology; at least two years successfully teaching college-level anatomy and physiology lecture and lab.

Emphasis will be on the structure and function of the following organ systems in the human body: nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic, digestive, respiratory, urinary, and reproductive. The laboratory portion complements and reinforces the lecture, focusing on closer examination of these system structures via live and virtual dissection, and demonstration of their functions via simple testing. Anatomical models, prepared microscope slides, and online resources may also be incorporated.
Qualifications: MS in Biology; at least two years successfully teaching college-level anatomy and physiology lecture and lab.

BIOL 250 - Microbiology with Lab (one section open)
