SCI 1101 - Science, Society & Environment I*SCI 1101 is the first in a two-part sequence that fulfills the general education science requirement. Using the context of environmental issues, it introduces students to the basic nature of matter, energy, and living systems and to the nature of science. Emphasis is placed on making decisions about scientific issues. Science 1101 is not designed for science majors and is not a prerequisite for introductory courses in biology, chemistry, or physics. This course includes a mandatory online lab component.
SCI 1102 - Science, Society & Environment II*
SCI 1102 is the second in a two part sequence that fulfills the general education science requirement. Using the context of environmental issues, it introduces students to the basic skills and scientific understandings needed by educated citizens to make informed decisions about scientific issues.

BIOL 3370 - Ecology*Relationships among living organisms and their environments at the individual, population, community and ecosystem levels. Laboratory and field activities will emphasize environmental sampling procedures and statistical analysis of sampling data.
BIOL 4490 - Phycology*BIOL 4490 covers the physiology, ecology, systematics, and diversity of marine and freshwater algae. In particular, it explores the role of algae in biogeochemical cycling, the evolution of photosynthesis, and ecosystem function in a changing biosphere. The course also focuses on the applied aspects of algal biology by examining their use as indicators of ecosystem health, food sources, and other social, cultural, and economic commodities. Field collections and experiments are an integral part of the course.
