Employability – Interpersonal Skills Development

This course is designed to help students enhance their interpersonal skills for career, job, and life success. The main focus is to present opportunities for students to practice developing job-related emotional intelligence and impression management skills.

Microbiology

An introductory course which includes the morphology, physiology, and pathology of microscopic organisms. Laboratory exercises emphasize the culturing, identification, and control of microorganisms. Successful completion of CHEM 100 or concurrent enrollment in CHEM 100 is highly recommended. [48-32-80] Lab Fee

Human Physiology

This course is a lecture and laboratory course that provides an introduction to the major concepts and homeostatic mechanisms necessary for a fundamental understanding of normal human physiology. General principles covered are cellular membrane function, electrophysiology, feedback mechanisms, and metabolism. Also included is an analysis of the properties and interrelationships of major organ systems and a brief introduction to selected disease processes. Strongly recommended is a grade of “C” or better in BIOL 99, or BIOL 110, or CHEM 100. [48-32-80] Lab Fee

Human Anatomy

This course is a lecture and laboratory course which provides a detailed study of all human body systems. The primary emphasis is on anatomic structures with a fundamental understanding of physiology. It is strongly recommended that the student have successfully completed one year of high school chemistry or CHEM 100 prior to enrollment. [48-32-80] Lab Fee

Life Science for Elementary Educators

This is a laboratory-based course specifically designed for prospective elementary teachers. The objectives of the course are to aid students in developing meaningful and functional understanding of key biological concepts in anatomy and physiology, ecology, and evolution; to facilitate insight in the nature of science as an intellectual activity; to explore alternative conceptions of scientific phenomena; to help students develop more positive attitudes about science; and increase their confidence in their ability to do science.

Botany

A lecture and laboratory course which includes the study of structures, physiology, and natural history of plants. Provides a background for more advanced courses and should be elected by pre-medicine students, as well as prospective biology majors. [48-48-96] Lab Fee

Principles of Biology: Cellular

This is one semester of a two semester, eight credit lecture and laboratory sequence designed to introduce the major concepts of biology for science majors with particular emphasis on molecular biology. This course includes cellular chemistry, cell structure and function, cellular energetics, mechanisms of mitosis and meiosis, Mendelian and molecular genetics, regulatory and development processes and evidence of evolution. [48-32-80] Lab Fee

Principles of Biology: Organismal

This is one semester of a two semester, eight credit lecture and laboratory sequence designed to introduce the major concepts of biology for science majors with particular emphasis on diversity of life, developmental biology, plant structure and function, animal structure and function, control systems in plant and animals, ecology and ecosystems.

Essentials of Anatomy and Physiology

An introduction to anatomy and physiology covering the basic structures and functions of the human body. This course is designed for students in the KCC Emergency Medical Services program. The course includes lecture and laboratory experiences. This course is not a substitute for BIOL 201. Other Allied Health students should take BIOL 201 and 202. [48-32-80] Lab Fee

Biological Science

This is a one semester lecture and laboratory course designed for non-science majors to overview the commonalities of life on earth. This course includes a study of the cell and energy flow; maintenance, coordination, and reproductive mechanisms of heredity and evolution; relationship of humans to their environment; and the impact new biological technologies may have on the future. Does NOT count toward a science or biology major. [48-32-80] Lab Fee
