BIOL 1322. NUTRITION AND DIET THERAPY
(LECTURE 3, LAB 0). CREDIT 3. AGCM.

This course introduces general nutritional concepts in health and disease and includes practical applications of that knowledge. Special emphasis is given to nutrients and nutritional processes including functions, food sources, digestion, absorption, and metabolism. Food safety, availability, and nutritional information including food labels, advertising, and nationally established guidelines are addressed. Prerequisite: TSI Reading 351 or IRW 0320 grade "C" or better. This course is also offered as a distance learning course.

BIOL 1406. BIOLOGY FOR SCIENCE MAJORS I
(LECTURE 3, LAB 3). CREDIT 4. AGCM.

Fundamental principles of living organisms will be studied, including physical and chemical properties of life, organization, function, evolutionary adaptation, and classification. Concepts of cytology, reproduction, genetics, and scientific reasoning are included. Prerequisite: TSI Reading 351 or IRW 0320 grade "C" or better. Successful completion of College Algebra or a higher-level mathematics is recommended.

BIOL 1407. BIOLOGY FOR SCIENCE MAJORS II
(LECTURE 3, LAB 3). CREDIT 4. AGCM.

Special emphasis will be given to anatomy, physiology, ecology, and evolution of plants and animals. Prerequisite: TSI Reading 351 or IRW 0320 grade "C" or better. Successful completion of Biology 1406 and College Algebra or higher-level mathematics is recommended, grade "C" or better.

BIOL 1408. BIOLOGY FOR NON-SCIENCE MAJORS I
(LECTURE 3, LAB 3). CREDIT 4. AGCM.

A survey of biological principles with an emphasis on humans, including chemistry of life, cells, structure, function, and reproduction. Prerequisite: TSI Reading 351 or IRW 0320 grade "C" or better.

BIOL 1409. BIOLOGY FOR NON-SCIENCE MAJORS II
(LECTURE 3, LAB 3). CREDIT 4. AGCM.

A survey of biological principles with an emphasis on humans, including evolution, ecology, plant and animal diversity, and physiology. Prerequisite: TSI Reading 351 or IRW 0320 grade "C" or better. Successful completion of BIOL 1408 with a grade of "C" or better is recommended.

BIOL 2401. ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGY I
(LECTURE 3, LAB 3). CREDIT 4. AGCM.

Anatomy and Physiology I is the first part of a two course sequence. It is a study of the structure and function of the human body including cells, tissues and organs of the following systems: integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous and special senses. Emphasis is on interrelationships among systems and regulation of physiological functions involved in maintaining homeostasis. Prerequisite: TSI Reading 351 or IRW 0320 grade "C" or better. BIOL 1408 grade "C" or better is strongly recommended as a prerequisite, but is not required.

BIOL 2402. ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGY II
(LECTURE 3, LAB 3). CREDIT 4. AGCM.

Anatomy and Physiology II is the second part of a two-course sequence. It is a study of the structure and function of the human body including the following systems: endocrine, cardiovascular, immune, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive (including nutrition), urinary (including fluid and electrolyte balance), and reproductive (including human development and genetics). Emphasis is on interrelationships among systems and regulation of physiological functions involved in maintaining homeostasis. Prerequisites: TSI Reading 351 or IRW 0320 grade "C" or better and BIOL 2401 ("C" or better).

BIOL 2404. ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGY
(LECTURE 3, LAB 3). CREDIT 4. AGCM.

Study of the structure and function of human anatomy, including the neuroendocrine, integumentary, musculoskeletal, digestive, urinary, reproductive, respiratory, and circulatory systems. Prerequisite: TSI Reading 351 or IRW 0320 grade "C" or better.

BIOL 2420. MICROBIOLOGY
(LECTURE 3, LAB 3). CREDIT 4. AGCM.

This course covers basic microbiology and immunology and is primarily directed at pre-nursing, pre-allied health, and non-science majors. It provides an introduction to historical concepts of the nature of microorganisms, microbial diversity, the importance of microorganisms and acellular agents in the biosphere, and their roles in human and animal diseases. Major topics include bacterial structure as well as growth, physiology, genetics, and biochemistry of microorganisms. Emphasis is on medical microbiology, infectious diseases, and public health. Prerequisites: Two lab-based courses (eight credit hours) selected from biology or chemistry core curriculum courses, grade "C" or better.
