Topics In Contemp Art
This course introduces contemporary art and theory. It covers art and artists from the 1960s to the present. This class deals with conceptual issues facing today's artists and introduces the main currents in contemporary critical theory. It is aim,ed at students who: 1) have a strong interest in contemporary art; 2) are interested in recent critical theory and its applications in visual art; 3) are artists or other students in the humanities planning to attend graduate school.
This course is a continuation of CHEM 453. Topics will include carbohydrate, lipid and amino acid metabolism, bioenergetics, vitamins and minerals, control and regulation of metabolic pathways, and the nature of genetic diseases. Prerequisite: CHEM 453. Spring annually.
Experiments involving the major techniques in modern biochemistry. Emphasizes separation and purification techniques, kinetic studies, quantitative determinations, and analytical instrumentation in biochemistry and biotechnology. Must be taken concurrently with CHEM 453. Prerequisite: CHEM 251 or 254. Fall, annually.
Freshman Biology Seminar
Recommended for all freshmen and new majors in any area of Biology. Enables students to (1) explore and understand various majors, minors, curricula, and career options in Biology; (2) become familiar with Biology Department faculty, research interests and opportunities; (3) identify and /or utilize department, campus and community resources that will enhance their academic program; and (4) develop and apply strategies to facilitate the learning process.
Deals with the principles of biology. Includes cellular structure and physiology, growth and repair, reproduction and development, control, sources of food energy, inheritance, and people's interrelationship with their biological environment. Briefly reviews the classification of plants and animals. Credit not to be applied toward biology major. Each semester.
A basic course in Biology for non-science majors. Includes cellular structure and function, molecular biology, genetics, survey of organisms, evolution, and ecology. Divided into two hours of lecture and a two-hour instruction/laboratory/discussion/recitation session weekly. Credit not to be applied toward the Biology major. Each semester.
Aerodynamics: Ph/Bio Of Flight
The biomechanics of flight. Students will use techniques in physics and evolutionary biology to study how animals fly and swim. Drawing upon bats, birds, insects, and even winged seeds, we will discuss and test the basic operating principles of wings. We will apply results obtained with a wind tunnel to the locomotion of objects in water. Students will then be able to compare and contrast the flyers and swimmers of nature with those of human invention. The course will have a substantial stu,dio laboratory component. Offered every other fall.
Intro To Forensic Science
Basic course in forensic science for non-majors combining field techniques in forensic ecology and taphonomy with laboratory techniques in molecular biology and biotechnology. Summer: daily for 8 hours, for 5 days or during the fall semester: weekly for 3 hours, for 12 weeks. Credit not to be applied toward any biology major. Summer or fall on demand. Prerequisite: a course in basic or introductory biology or permission of instructor.
Insects And Society
A basic course in insects and their interactions with human society. Includes insect diversity, insect structure and function, insect biology, and both insect benefits and damage. Three lecture hours weekly. Credit may not be applied toward a Biology degree. Annually.
