BIOL 151 - Principles of Biology {expander}

3 hours + 1 hour lab (4 credits)

This course provides the fundamental information upon which all advanced studies in biology depend, and is a prerequisite to most other biology courses. Studies include basic biological chemistry, cell structure and function, cellular respiration, photosynthesis, genetics, origins, and the classification system. Three hours of lecture and one three-hour laboratory per week.

BIOL 252 - Animal Biology {expander}

3 hours + 1 hour lab (4 credits)

Prerequisite: BIOL 151

This zoology course is a general survey of the animal kingdom and includes a study of the anatomy, physiology, life histories, classification, and ecological importance of animals. Three hours of lecture and one three-hour laboratory per week.

BIOL 253 - Plant Biology {expander}

3 hours + 1 hour lab (4 credits)

Prerequisite: BIOL 151

This botany course includes a study of plant structures, physiology, reproductive strategies, life histories, and the ecological importance of plants. A general survey of the plant kingdom is also included. Three hours of lecture and one three-hour laboratory per week.

BIOL 468 - Animal Physiology {expander}

3 hours + 1 hour lab (4 credits)

Prerequisites: BIOL 252, CHEM 112.

This course is a study of the functional processes used by animals in responding to their external environment and controlling their internal environment. Vertebrate physiology external environment and controlling their internal environment. Vertebrate physiology is emphasized. All organ systems are studied. Three hours of lecture and one three-hour laboratory per week.

CHEM 111 - General Chemistry I {expander}
