Course Requirements

 

Microbiology for Health Sciences (4-3-3) is an introduction to the microbial world including the basic characteristics of fungi, algae, bacteria, and viruses. Special emphasis is placed on applications to humans. This course will not count as credit toward the Associate of Science degree in Biology. Prerequisites: BIOL 2402 or BIOL 2304/2101 with minimum grade of C (or equivalent with lab).

 

Online access for Microbiology with Diseases by Body System  3rd edition is www.masteringmicrobiology.com  course  ID isMMBPERRYSMITH1147511475 

Course Rationale:

This course provides a survey of microorganisms, their environments, and their interactions with multicelllar organisms, especially humans, and it concentrates on the microbes that are pathogenic to humans. The goal of Microbiology for health Sciences is to adequately prepare students for the health science programs at ACC. Specific skills and competencies are expected of students who successfully complete this course, including the ability to:

  • Explain microbiological processes in detail and on an appropriate level
  • Develop observation skills
  • Record, analyze and infer from data
  • Demonstrate higher level thinking skills, including problem solving
  • Construct graphs from data and obtain information from graphs
  • Manipulate equipment
  • Work effectively in a group
  • Work safely in a lab setting
  • Work with computer-based online chapter activities, chapter reviews, and practice tests supplied by  www.masteringmicrobiology.com with Microbiology with Diseases by Body Systems 3rd edition.
