ENG-105 - COMPOSITION I

Lecture: 3

Credit: 3

A study of the principles of writing. Emphasis on rhetoric, mechanics, and development of expository patterns: narration, description illustration, comparison/contrast, classification, process, and cause/effect. Required for AA and AS Degrees. Prerequisites: Meet minimum placement test score requirement.

CHM-165 - GENERAL CHEMISTRY I

Lecture: 3

Lab: 2

Credit: 4

The first semester of a traditional two-semester sequence. General Chemistry I provides an in-depth and integrated study of chemical principles, including terminology, measurements, unit conversions, atoms, elements, molecules, compounds, moles, stoichiometry, gases and gas laws, energy, electron configurations, periodicity and chemical bonding. Prerequisite: 1 year high school chemistry or CHM-122 or BIO-252

MAT-210 - CALCULUS I

Lecture: 4

Credit: 4

This course includes the study of limits and continuity, derivatives and differentiation, differentials, maximum and minimum function values and techniques of graphing, applications, and an introduction to integration. Prerequisites: MAT-120 AND MAT-134 with a minimum grade of C- or meets minimum placement testing requirements.

SDV-108 - THE COLLEGE EXPERIENCE

Lecture: 1

Credit: 1

This course is designed to empower new students to successfully transition to college. Students will learn academic success skills, strategies for personal development and exploration, college culture and expectations, and how to access college resources and services.

SOC-110 - INTRODUCTION TO SOCIOLOGY

Lecture: 3

Credit: 3

An analysis of social organization (or the social order). This course deals with the nature of sociology as a science, the original nature of man, the socialization of the individual, the development of groups and group behavior, the nature of culture and culture patterns, the organization of institutions, the nature of social order, the organization of human stratification and examination of major social processes. Special emphasis is placed upon the American cultural patterns.

ENG-106 - COMPOSITION II

Lecture: 3

Credit: 3

A continuation of study of the principles of writing begun in ENG-105. Emphasis is placed on persuasive writing, critical analysis, and the MLA research paper. Time will also be spent exploring print and electronic research sources and learning effective research strategies. Required for AA and AS Degrees. Prerequisite: ENG-105 with a grade of C- or better.

CHM-175 - GENERAL CHEMISTRY II

Lecture: 3

Lab: 2

Credit: 4

The second semester of the traditional two semester sequence. General Chemistry II covers basic principles of intermolecular forces, colligative properties, reaction kinetics, chemical equilibria, acids and bases, precipitation reactions, spontaneity and electrochemistry. Prerequisite: CHM-165.

SPC-112 - PUBLIC SPEAKING

Lecture: 3

Credit: 3

This course examines both the theoretical and practical basis of speech communication, particularly public speaking. Emphasis is on speech preparation, organization, support, delivery, and audience analysis.

MAT-216 - CALCULUS II

Lecture: 4

Credit: 4

This course is a study of integration, techniques of integration, applications and accompanying mathematical structure. Prerequisite: MAT-210 with a minimum grade of C-.

PHY-212 - CLASSICAL PHYSICS I

Lecture: 4

Lab: 2

Credit: 5

Classical Physics introduces the students to the classical topics of motion in one, two and three dimensions (Kinematics and dynamics), gravitation, work and energy, relativistic dynamics, rotational and oscillatory motion and thermodynamics. This physics course depends very much on the calculus of reals and vector integral calculus. Pre or Corequisite: MAT-210.

HIS-151 - US HISTORY TO 1877

Lecture: 3

Credit: 3

A survey of American social, political, economic and intellectual developments from the Colonial period to 1877.

CHM-263 - ORGANIC CHEMISTRY I

Lecture: 4

Lab: 2

Credit: 5

Fundamental principles of organic chemistry for premedical, pre-dental, pre-pharmacy, biochemistry, medical technology, forestry, and home economics students, as well as liberal arts students who have a special interest in the sciences. These general principles are illustrated by preparation and study of typical representatives of the aliphatic and aromatic series including all common functional groups. Prerequisite: CHM-175.

PSY-111 - INTRODUCTION TO PSYCHOLOGY

Lecture: 3

Credit: 3

A basic course in the understanding of behavior, designed to give the student a scientific background in the fundamental problems and techniques covered in the field of psychology.

PHI-105 - INTRODUCTION TO ETHICS

Lecture: 3

Credit: 3

A survey of the major ethical emphases from ancient to modem times with pertinent reading in the works of representative philosophers.

CHM-273 - ORGANIC CHEMISTRY II

Lecture: 4

Lab: 2

Credit: 5

Continuation of Organic Chemistry 1, with advanced synthesis, instrumental analysis, and emphasis on biochemistry. Prerequisite: CHM-263.

PHY-222 - CLASSICAL PHYSICS II

Lecture: 4

Lab: 2

Credit: 5

Classical Physics II continues in the second semester with emphasis on the theory of electricity and magnetism. The concept of a field is applied to the electrostatic charge. The laws of Coulomb and Gauss are to be developed and applied to various types of charge distribution. Electric current and magnetic force are to be discussed in connection with their application to electromagnetic induction. Prerequisite: PHY-212.

HUM-114 - MULTICULTURAL PERSPECTIVES

Lecture: 3

Credit: 3

Selected readings from the critical perspectives of race, class and gender will provide the theoretical framework for class discussions. At the same time, films and works of literature from different cultural points of view will help students reach a new understanding of their own and other cultures and will open themselves up for a multicultural understanding of society.
