Science (SCI)

This course will introduce the processes involved in research. Students will be designing and performing experiments and analyzing the results. Objectives are: to understand the scientific method, interpret statistics, and appreciate mathematical research. Computers will be used for statistics, graphing, pattern recognition and word processing. Recommended for mathematics and science oriented liberal arts students as a liberal arts elective. Not open to Science or Engineering Science majors. Prerequisite: One year of college science
Course Syllabus
This course teaches a computer language and emphasizes application of programming methods for the sciences and engineering. Numerical methods will be applied to examples gleaned from physics, chemistry, and biology and engineering. Prerequisite: MAT 206
Course Syllabus
This course is similar in scope and assignments to SCI 120 but utilizes the Pascal programming language.
Course Syllabus
This is a study of a typical microprocessor and interfacing techniques. Concepts of electricity and its application to digital circuits are introduced as needed for purposes of control and measurement of analog quantities such as current, voltage, and temperature.
Prerequisite: MAT 206
Course Syllabus
This is an introduction to the fundamental principles of human nutrition. The nutrient composition of various foods is examined as well as the manner in which the nutrients are metabolized and used by the human body.
Prerequisite: One semester of science or departmental approval
Course Syllabus

This course is offered as an elective in all curricula.
Prerequisite: One semester of any science
Course Syllabus
This course covers the theory and practice and quantitative method with special attention to instrumentation currently employed such as optical, electro-chemical, chromatographic, and radio-chemical techniques. The physicochemical theory and operating characteristics of the instrumentation are stressed. The laboratory emphasizes measurements of biological and environmental significance.
Prerequisite: 1 year of laboratory science or departmental approval.
Course Syllabus
This course studies alterations of normal physiological processes. Included in the course are the basic principles of pathophysiology as well as application of these principles to specific organ systems.
Prerequisites: BIO 426 and CHE 118 or CHE 121, or permission of the department
Course Syllabus
Fundamental principles and concepts in pharmacology are considered. Particular attention is given to drug action and interaction, and to the effect of drugs and toxic substances in the human organism. This course is required in selected programs in Allied Health Sciences; available to all other students for elective credit. It is recommended that students complete HIT 103, Medical Terminology I, before registering for this course.
