    ANAT-1002 -  Human Anatomy I

    ANAT1002 is the first of a two part course which introduces normal structure and function of body systems in order to prepare the student for advanced anatomy and physiology courses offered in Health Sciences. The material includes an introduction to anatomical terminology, cell and tissue level of organization and will cover 6 of the 11 body systems including: integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, and endocrine systems.

    ANAT-1009 -  Human Anatomy II

    ANAT1009 is the second of a two-part course which introduces normal structure and function of the body systems in order to prepare the student for advanced anatomy and physiology courses offered in Health Sciences. The course covers the remaining 6 of the 11 body systems from ANAT1002. The material includes: the cardiovascular, lymphatic, respiratory, reproductive, urinary and digestive systems.

    BIOL-1003 -  Biological Sciences I

    BIOL1003 is the first of two biology courses designed for students entering careers in health care. This course begins with an examination of the diversity of living organisms, macromolecules, and cell structure and function. Students will understand how cells replicate and produce energy, DNA mutations and those effects on cell function, and cancer. Students will also learn about DNA mutations as the basis for evolution, and they will be introduced to Mendelian genetics. The course will conclude with a closer examination of bacteria and virus diversity and the evolution of microorganisms.

    BIOL-1008 -  Biological Sciences II

    BIOL 1008 continues the study of life sciences by examining nucleic acids, protein synthesis, molecular genetics, recombinant DNA, and genetic engineering technology. In this course, students will also learn about human defense mechanisms, immune system disorders, circulation and homeostasis, with special focus on prevalent diseases, such as coronary artery diseases, and autoimmune diseases.

    CHEM-1004 -  Chemistry I

    This course emphasizes the molecular view of chemical principles and will present and use the qualitative and quantitative equations of basic chemistry and apply them to chemical problems. Examples from inorganic, organic, industrial, and biological chemistry will be used to illustrate these underlying principles as well as applications to the various Health Science Programs.

    CHEM-1006 -  Chemistry II

    This is a continuation of CHEM1004 and involves a more detailed investigation into organic chemistry and biochemistry.

    HLTH-1032 -  Success Strategies in Health Professions

    The course will enable the learner the ability to increase their knowledge and skills in areas such as study techniques, note taking, time management, research and test taking. The learner will be provided the opportunity to explore personal perceptions and attitudes; determine their own learning style; and develop personal and academic goals. Health care professions are researched through various media including the Internet, professional journal articles and interviews with both health care program students and professionals. In addition, the learner will identify prefixes, suffixes, roots and medical terms frequently used in health care today.

    INDS-3010 -  Writing & Contemporary Health Issues

    This course offers an integrated approach to reading and writing in the health field. Students read, analyze, discuss and write about various contemporary health topics and are expected to write clear, logical and thoughtful responses to articles, stories and other information presented in class.

    MATH-1024 -  Mathematics

    This course is designed to provide students with the necessary mathematical skills for solving problems in the Health Science Programs. The course will include operations with real numbers and algebraic expressions, solving and graphing equations, operations with rational expressions and formulas, and applications of basic geometry and trigonometry.

    MATH-1028 -  Mathematics

    This course is designed to provide the students with more advanced algebraic skills for solving problems in the Health Science Programs. The course will include functions and their graphs, solving radical, quadratic, exponential and logarithmic equations with a brief introduction to basic statistics.

    PHYS-1005 -  Physical Sciences I

    This course has an online component and is the first of a two-part course directed toward the needs of students in health sciences. A conceptual understanding of the basic physical principles of liquids and gases at rest and in motion is developed through the introduction of many biological and biomedical applications. In addition, students will develop an understanding of phase changes which result from changes in pressure and or temperature.

    PHYS-1009 -  Physical Sciences II

    PHYS1009 has an online component and is the second of a two-part course directed toward the needs of students in health sciences. The material details practical and health care applications of electricity, magnetism and radiation through the introduction of basic concepts, the development of understanding through problem solving and the presentation of examples in class and on-line.
