Biology 201‑1  Biology Orientation An exposure to literature searches, reading scientific papers, the methods of science, experimental design and analysis, science in society, the biology curriculum, and career opportunities in the biological sciences. Required for all biology majors in their sophomore year. Fall 208‑5  Human Anatomy and Physiology I (Lec/Lab) A study of the structure and function of the human body, including gross and micro-anatomy. Physiological principles at the organ system and organ levels are emphasized. Focus on integumentary, skeletal, muscular nenous and endocrine systems. Prerequisite: Biol 150, Chem 114, or Chem 133. (In the 208-209 sequence, only 208 will count for major or minor credit.) 4/1 credits. Fall 209‑5  Human Anatomy and Physiology II (Lec/Lab) Continuation of Biol 208. Focus on cardiovascular, immune, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive systems. Prerequisite: Biol 208. (Not for major or minor credit.) 4/1 credits. Spring 210-1 Medical Terminology Knowledge of medical terminology. Fall and spring 216-4  Microbiology (Lec/Lab) A study of the characteristics of microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, microorganisms), and principles of their growth and control. Interactions between host and microbe, including host defenses, infectious diseases, and epidemiology are also included. Prerequisite: Biol 151, Biol 120, or Chem 133. 3/1 credits. Spring 235‑2  Human Parasitology (Lec/Lab) This combined lecture/laboratory course presents an overview of human parasitology with an emphasis on the medically relevant parasites. It is primarily designed for clinical laboratory science students. The course will cover basic knowledge of life cycles, pathologies produced, and laboratory diagnosis of human parasites. Prerequisite: Biol 151. Spring 62

304‑4  Invertebrate Zoology (Lec/Lab) A study of the biological diversity of invertebrate animals, focused on the evolution, ecology, and morphology of major phyla. Prerequisite: Biol 151. 3/1 credits. Fall, even years 305‑5  Cell Biology (Lec/Lab) A study of cell structure and function with emphasis on the eukaryotic cell and cellular processes. Prerequisites: Biol 151, Chem 134, and Chem 343 (or concurrently) or permission. 4/1 credits. Fall 306‑4  Vertebrate Zoology (Lec/Lab) A study of biological diversity of vertebrate animals, focused on the evolutionary history, ecology and morphology of major lineages. Prerequisites: Biol 151 and junior standing or permission. 3/1 credits. Spring, odd years 308-4  Animal Behavior (Lec/Lab) A study of mechanisms and evolution of animal behavior. Examples will be drawn from a taxonomically diverse assemblage of animals, and labs will include field and lab-based studies. Prerequisite: Biol 150 and sophomore standing or permission of instructor. 3/1 credits. Fall, odd years 310-4  Ecology (Lec/Lab) Principles of population, community, and ecosystem ecology exemplified by plant and animal populations. Emphasis on population dynamics, trophic relationships, and environmental factors affecting the community. Prerequisites: Biol 151 and Chem 133. 3/1 credits. Spring, even years 312-4  Developmental Biology Patterns and principles of animal development with an emphasis on echinoderm and chordate developmental systems. Prerequisites: Biol 151 and Biol 305 (or concurrently) or permission. 4 credits. Fall, odd years 325-2  Histology (by arrangement) A study of mammalian cell structure, tissues, and their organization. Prerequisite: Biol 209
