BIO Biology

BIO 104 - Biology: A Human Approach:GT-SC1 4 Credits
Develops a basic knowledge of the structure and function of the human body by studying the body's structure as a series of interrelated systems. Includes cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, lymphatic, musculoskeletal, nervous, endocrine, reproductive and urinary systems, and genetics. Emphasizes disease prevention and wellness. This course includes laboratory experience.
(Contact hours- 75)

BIO 105 - Science of Biology-GT-SC1
4 Credits
Examines the basis of biology in the modern world and surveys the current knowledge and conceptual framework of the discipline. Explores biology as a science - a process of gaining new knowledge - as is the impact of biological science on society. Includes laboratory experiences. Designed for non-science majors.
(Contact hours - 75)

BIO 106 - Basic Anatomy And Physiology 4 Credits
