Course Descriptions

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.

ETHC1001 : ETHICS
3.00 credits: The foundations of Greek and modern Euro-American ethical thinking is presented. Students apply values and assumptions to simple ethical problems and then to situations of ethical distress in a variety of health-related and general-life settings.
PHYS2040 : GENERAL PHYSICS 1: MECHANICS
4.00 credits: Students learn the fundamentals of physics with emphasis on areas that apply to understanding the human body. Topics include matter, energy, force, work, power, motion, electricity, light, heat, sound, magnetism and medical imaging. 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.
CHEM2048 : GENERAL CHEMISTRY 1
4.00 credits: This course investigates the composition, phases and chemical reactions of matter. The course has a laboratory component.
