Credits: 
1
Level: 
Lower
Prerequisites: 

(BIOL 2204 with grade C or better and BIOL 1104 with grade C or better and CHEM 1984 with grade C or better) or (CHEM 1114 with grade C or better and CHEM 2124 with grade C or better)

Description: 

This course is intended for students typically in their fourth semester of the two-year biological sciences program. The course is designed to prepare the student for transfer to a four-year institution and/or enter the workforce. Students are introduced to the theoretical and practical aspects of preparing and delivering a full-feature (40-45 minute length ) presentation on a given topic within the realm of a biological discipline.

BIOL 1304 - Botany

Level: 
Lower
Credits: 
4
Course Attributes: 
Course attributes: Gen Ed - Natural Sciences, Liberal Arts and Science
Description: 

Each of us is intimately involved with plants. We wear them, ingest them, exchange gas molecules with them, live under them, etc. In this course students will develop knowledge of plant morphology (form) and function that later enhances their lives. Topics include the study of human food, ornamental plants, feed, forestry, and any other use of plants to sustain life on the planet Earth or provide other ecosystem services.
