Fundamentals of cancer biology. This course examines scientific causes of cancer. Additional analysis includes studying the emotional, financial, social and psychological effects on patients, family and caregivers in "real-world" applications. This course is intended for the non-biology major and meets the University Studies Curriculum Cluster 2B requirement.

The first of a two-semester sequence designed to provide freshmen biology majors and other students with hands on training in scientific thinking & techniques. This course emphasizes hypothesis generation, experimental design, and communication of results through peer-review style written reports. During most class sessions, students learn techniques, and then develop their own hypotheses & design experiments to test in consultation with the lab instructor.

The second of a two-semester sequence designed to provide freshmen biology majors and other students with hands on training in scientific thinking & techniques. This course emphasizes data analysis through statistical techniques. Emphasis is also placed on presentation of original research through both peer-review style written reports, and through a group poster presentation.

Fundamentals of cancer biology. Examines in-depth the molecular and cellular basis of cancer. Modern biomedical research is explored and provides insights underlying modern cancer biology and many aspects of immunology, developmental biology, and neurobiology. This course is intended for advanced undergraduates in the biology major.

In-depth study of a specific area in biology, leading to independent research addressing a biological question. Research results will be presented in a professional-style poster at a research symposium. Attendance at biology department seminars is also required.

Introduction to study in the disciplines of the College of Arts and Sciences. This course is designed to increase student success at college. The overall goal of the course is to facilitate a smooth transition to college life by engaging students in a structured curriculum of academic and life skills enhancement while, at the same time, encouraging the development of enduring relationships between students, faculty and advisors, and classmates. To accomplish this goal, the content of the class includes: locating and utilizing campus resources, the importance of co-curricular activity on campus, goal setting and time management skills, writing skills, test preparation and taking skills, critical and creative thinking skills, and career and major/minor exploration.
