Course Descriptions

CHEM2049 : GENERAL CHEMISTRY 2
4.00 credits: This course continues the General Chemistry sequence with an emphasis on kinetics, solutions, acids and bases, equilibrium, environmental chemistry, modern chemistry and electrochemistry with introductions to organic and biochemistry. Practical real life examples of chemistry as newly reported will be introduced and examples of chemistry in the health sciences will be provided.
PHYS2041 : GENERAL PHYSICS 2: ELECTRICITY AND MAGNETISM
4.00 credits: This is the second in a two-course algebra-based general Physics sequence with lab with an emphasis on areas that apply to understanding the human body. The focus of this course is electromagnetic phenomenon including electricity, magnetism, waves, light and optics and also includes nuclear physics. Examples of electromagnetism in the human body and biomedical applications will be used. This course has a laboratory component.
PSYC1001 : GENERAL PSYCHOLOGY
3.00 credits: This course provides a basic introduction to psychology. Topics discussed will include psycho-logical theories and clinical approaches to this science. Specific topics may also include historical foundations of psychology, physiological/biological psychology, developmental psychology, sensation and perception, learning theory, cognitive psychology, personality theories, abnormal psychology and health psychology.
PSYC1002 : HEALTH PSYCHOLOGY
4.00 credits: The field of health psychology includes five principle health domains: individual, community, environmental, health systems and health policy. The goal of this course is to familiarize students with each of these five domains through an examination of the theoretical, empirical and clinical aspects of health. Students will learn to identify and analyze the causes and correlates of health and disease in an increasingly, interrelated and diverse world using research techniques. This course will pursue a global approach towards wellbeing, taking into consideration the social, political and historical context of such issues in each environment. We will discuss the health status of different countries and the role of lifestyles and behaviors on individual outcomes, especially in industrialized countries.
ANAT1001 : ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGY 1
4.00 credits: ****ANAT 1001*** 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.
ANAT1002 : ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGY 2
4.00 credits: ****ANAT1002**** This course builds on the material from Human Anatomy and Physiology I and explores the endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic/immune, integumentary, respiratory, digestive, urinary and reproductive systems. All systems are integrated using cross-sectional analysis of the human body. The laboratory portion of the course will include the opportunity to observe prosected human cadavers.
ENGL1002 : HUMAN COMMUNICATION
3.00 credits: Of all the things that human beings do, communication may be the most complicated. This is a cross between an academic course and a speech course, combining theory and practice, and borrowing information and ideas from the disciplines of psychology, sociology, history, and cultural anthropology. Major topics includes differences in communication styles, non-verbal skills, and the art of persuasion.
CHEM2058 : ORGANIC CHEMISTRY 1
4.00 credits: This course begins with a review of basic chemical concepts applied to organic molecules and then explores organic chemistry nomenclature, structural isomerism, and stereochemistry. The course includes an investigation of substitution, elimination, and addition reactions and examines the importance of these general concepts and reactions in biological systems. The laboratory component includes general lab techniques and understanding of basic laboratory concepts.
