This literature and lecture-based course will introduce an integrative approach to the study of animal behavior, complementing evolutionary and ecological perspectives with molecular and genetic approaches and methodologies. Cross-listed with NRSC
Intro to Medical Lab Science. Designed to acquaint first year student freshman medical technology students the the depth and breadth of this field. Students visit medical technology departments at local hospitals. The course is presented by the education coordinators at local hospitals.
This course is designed to accommodate one semester of the general education requirement for non-science majors and Minot State University. The course will focus on a comprehensive survey of modern biology with an emphasis on enhancing the science literacy of the college educated student.
Topics will include, but not limited to: Where appropriate, topics will be illustrated with examples of the human animal and at all times the course will reflect the five strands of a general education course. Lecture, 3 hours; laboratory, 2 hours. Honors Concepts of Biology. This course is designed to accomodate one semester of the general education requirement for non-science majors at Minot State University.
The course will focus on a comprehensive survey of modern biology with an emphasis on enhancing the science literacy of the college-educated student. Topics will include, but are not limited to: Where appropriate, topics will be illustrated with examples of the human animal, and at all times the course will reflect the five strands of a general education course.
Laboratory time will focus on small-scale research projects and in-depth discussion. Structure and function of the human body. Anatomy and physiology of major body systems is emphasized. Designed to acquaint students with major principles of ecology and the nature of human interaction with the living world.
The course will focus on how human action influences the ecology of the earth. Ecological concepts covered will include community structure, predator prey interactions, competition, tropic levels, energy flow, the carbon cycle, and adaptation.
In this light, students will examine specific issues and problems including those of land use choices, natural resource exploitation, biodiversity, industrialization, and urbanization.
Introduction To Cellular Biology. Introduction to fundamental concepts of biology at the level of the cell including: Honors General Biology I. This introductory biology course is intended for science majors interested in animal biology. The course begins with an introduction to the scientific method and some select cellular functions.
The course then introduces some basic concepts of genetics, which leads to an exploration of evolutionary theory. This is followed by an exploration of animal diversity, with a heavy emphasis on animal structure, function, and evolutionary relationships.
The course ends with a brief exploration of animal ecology. Lab exercises involve some dissections of preserved animals. Honors General Biology II. The biology of animals is covered beginning with an emphasis on the underlying cellular structure and physiology and expanding towards larger whole organism features that are difficult to predict from cell biology.
The general patterns of animal life are covered. In an effort to connect the general principles offered in this course to one's daily life e. Introduction to the biology of plants emphasizing evolution and diversity, plant anatomy and development, water and mineral nutrition, photosynthesis, and plant ecology.
Honors Introduction to Botany. A survey fo microbial cell biology, microbial genetics, microbial interaction with humans, and the impact of microorganisms on the environment. Introduction to principles of genetics including:Description. The purpose of this course is to provide an introduction to Web design.
Students will learn concepts related to planning and developing web sites by studying Web usability, multimedia, and Web applications for business and education web sites. Cover page of the th issue.
