MEDICAL LABORATORY  SCIENCES COURSES

BIOL 115-Human Structure and Function (F&S SM, 3 credits)
Biology 115, in conjunction with Biology 115L, is designed to be an introduction for students planning on taking higher  level anatomy and physiology courses. The course will include a wide range of topics associated with the human body and human life. This course, when taken with the associated lab, will fulfill the lab science requirements for the student planning a non-science major.

BIOL 115L-Human Structure and Function Lab (F&S SM, 1 credit)
Biology 115L, in conjunction with Biology 115, is designed to introduce students to the study of human anatomy and physiology. Included are laboratory activities on structure and function of the human body.

BIOL 220-Anatomy and Physiology I (F&S SM, 3 credits)
This is the first of two courses in which anatomy and physiology are leveraged to present a unified picture of the structure and function of the organs and systems of the human body. The courses include biochemistry, cells, tissues, and the following systems: integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, and special senses. Both gross and microscopic structures are studied. Concurrent Registration in or previous successful completion of BIOL 220L is required. A student should have ACT placement scores of 21 in Math and Reading OR COMPASS placement scores
of 49 in math, 85 in Reading AND a 3.0 or higher GPA in high school Biology or Chemistry; OR one of the following: Successful completion (C or better) of BIOL 115/115L; a bachelor's degree; a GPA of 3.0 or higher in CHEM 121/121L or MICR 202/202L or BIOL 150/150L or BIOL 151/151L; or 60% on the A&P Placement Exam (contact your advisor for more information).

BIOL 220L-Anatomy and Physiology I Lab (F&S, 1 credit)
Concurrent registration in or previous successful completion of BIOL 220 is required. Anatomical structures will be studied at both gross and microscopic levels. Experiments are performed demonstrating fundamental physiological principles.

BIOL 221-Anatomy and Physiology II(F&S, 3 credits)
Prerequisite: BIOL 220 and 220L. This is the second of two courses in which discussions of anatomy and physiology are interwoven in an attempt to present a unified picture of the structure and function of the organs and systems of the human body. The following systems are examined: endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic, immune, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive. Both gross and microscopic structures are studied. Concurrent registration in, or previous successful completion of BIOL 221L is required.

BIOL 221L-Anatomy and Physiology II Lab (F&S, 1 credit)
Concurrent registration in or previous successful completion of BIOL 221 is required. Anatomical structures will be studied at both gross and microscopic levels. Experiments are performed demonstrating fundamental physiological principles.

CHEM 121-General Chemistry I (F&S, 4 credits)
This course is the first of a two-semester sequence primarily intended for students majoring in science and science-related fields. Topics to be covered in this semester include: matter, measurement, atoms, ions, molecules, reactions, chemical calculations, thermochemistry, bonding, molecular geometry, periodicity, and gases. Successful completion of MATH 103 or higher level math with a "C" or better, Math ACT score or equivalent placement score of at least 24, or by permission from instructor. Concurrent registration in CHEM 121L is required.

CHEM 121L-General Chemistry I Lab (F&S, 1 credit)
One three-hour lab session per week. Labs completed will follow topics covered in the lecture portion of the class. Concurrent registration in CHEM 121 is required.

CHEM 122-General Chemistry II (Spring SM, 4 credits)
This course is the second of a two-semester sequence primarily intended for students majoring in science and science-related fields. Topics to be covered in this semester include: intermolecular forces, liquids, solids, kinetics, equilibria, acids, bases, solution chemistry, precipitation, thermodynamics, and electrochemistry. Prerequisite: Completion of CHEM 121 with a grade of "C" or better. Concurrent registration in CHEM 122L is required.

CHEM 122L-General Chemistry II Lab (Spring SM, 1 credit)
One three-hour lab session per week. Labs completed will follow topics covered in the lecture portion of the class. Concurrent registration in CHEM 122 is required.

CHEM 242-Organic Chemistry II (Spring, 4 credits)
Designed for science and preprofessional students. Structure and reactivity, name reactions, carbon-carbon bond forming reactions, aromatic and heterocyclic chemistry, biomolecules and polymers, multi-step synthesis. Prerequisite: C or better in CHEM 241 within the last 3 years. Concurrent registration in CHEM 242L is required.

CHEM 242L-Organic Chemistry II Lab (Spring, 1 credit)
One three-hour lab session per week. Labs completed will follow topics covered in the lecture portion of the class. Concurrent registration in CHEM 242 is required.

MATH 103-College Algebra (F&S SM, 4 credits)
Prerequisite: Qualifying placement score or completion of ASC 93 with a grade of "C" or better. Solutions of linear and quadratic equations and inequalities, graphing functions and relations, polynomial and rational functions, systems of equations and inequalities, exponential and logarithmic functions.

MICR 202-Introductory Microbiology (F&S SM, 3 credits)
This course will include the study of cell structure and physiology of microorganisms, methods of microbial control, specific and nonspecific host defenses and epidemiology. Concurrent registration in or previous successful completion (""C"" or better) of MICR 202L.

MICR 202L-Introductory Microbiology Lab (F&S, 1 credit)
Students will learn basic microbiology techniques and principles as they study the characteristics of representative bacteria and fungi. Concurrent registration in or previous successful completion of MICR 202 is required.

MLS 201-Immunology (Spring, 4 credits)
The foundations of diagnostic serology, immunohematology, histocompatibility and hematology as well as new technology such as monoclonal antibodies and molecular biology are covered in order for students to become better prepared for a career in laboratory medicine. Prerequisites: General Biology 150-151 or equivalent, CHEM 115,116 or 121,122 strongly recommended. Open to all students.
