Course Descriptions

ANAT1001 : ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGY 1
4.00 credits: The first in a two-part sequence of courses introduces students to the organization of the body on a chemical, cellular, tissue and system level. Integrating structures (anatomy) and their function (physiology) is a focus of each course in this sequence with this course focusing the skeletal/articular, muscular, and nervous systems in detail. The laboratory portion of the course will include the opportunity to observe prosected human cadavers.
PHYS2050 : BIOMECHANICS
3.00 credits: This is an introductory course on the resolution of forces involved in human movement. Includes principles of physics governing human motion (force of gravity, work, energy, laws of motion, etc.), the application of force in relation to center of mass, displacement, velocity, acceleration, buoyancy and the analysis of movement.
ANTH1001 : CULTURAL ANTHROPOLOGY
4.00 credits: Cultural anthropology is a course that examines cultures from all over the world using anthropological concepts. The class will comparatively explore data, social patterns, history, diversity, and belief systems across cultures within their respective contexts. Topics to be discussed but are not limited to include culture, cultural change, religion and the supernatural, kinship, family, and descent, art, health and medicine, economics, politics, subsistence, gender, and language. Ethnography, the writing style of the discipline, will also be explored.
ENGL1001 : ENGLISH COMPOSITION
3.00 credits: Good writing doesn’t just communicate ideas – it also presents the writer as a person who deserves to be taken seriously. This course covers the basic mechanics of constructing sentences and stringing them together into arguments. Along the way we will consider issues such as audience, style, and the “rules” of writing, some of which are not really rules.
ETHC1001 : ETHICS
3.00 credits: As human beings living among other human beings, we have obligations to one another. Unfortunately, it isn’t always clear what those obligations are. This course proposes to help students think more clearly about ethics. We will assemble a toolbox by looking at some of the ethical thinking that has been done in the past, and we will use our tools to address contemporary issues.
PHYS2040 : GENERAL PHYSICS 1: MECHANICS
4.00 credits: The first in a two course sequence in Physics. This course focuses on classical mechanics and topics include matter, motion, force, work, energy, power, fluids and heat. Examples provided during the course will include the application of physics to the human body. The course has a laboratory component.
BIOL2030 : GENERAL BIOLOGY 1 WITH HUMAN EMPHASIS
4.00 credits: This course investigates basic principles of human and animal biology, including physiology, cell biology, biochemistry, energetics, genetics, evolution and ecology. Lab component will emphasize the use of methodologies typical of biological studies.
BIOL2040 : GENERAL BIOLOGY 2 WITH ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY EMPHASIS
4.00 credits: This course investigates principles of human biology, including detailed anatomy and physiology descriptions of the skeletal, muscular, circulatory, respiratory and other systems. Lab component will emphasize dissection and observation of organs.
