BSC 1005C - Diversity of Life

(3 Credit Hours)

Four hours lecture/lab per week.

This course meets Area V requirements for the A.A./A.A.S./A.S. General Education requirements.  This course is designed to introduce students to the diversity of life on Earth and integrate current issues to teach biological concepts.  Topics covered include biologically important molecules, cells, cellular reproduction, genetics, evolution, organismal biology, and basic ecology.  The course investigates the traits and ecological roles of bacteria, protists, fungi, plants, and animals. Many topics are taught through investigation of contemporary issues (e.g. emerging viruses & endangered species).  This course is appropriate for non-science majors. Students already with credit for BSC2011C cannot subsequently get credit for BSC1005C.  Additional special fees are required.
