Courses:

BSCI279E: Environmental Biology. The environment is in the news almost daily—global warming, toxic waste, oil spills, loss of biodiversity. How can you understand these complex topics? What is the basis for your own behaviors and decisions regarding the environment? The science of environmental biology can help you make sense of the natural world around you and your impact on it. BSCI279E will explore adaptation and natural selection; organismic, population, community, and ecosystem ecology; and human impact on natural systems. Each week will feature a day-long field trip with organized learning activities that spotlight ideas and information crucial to the course. In addition, several on-campus field activities will introduce students to local freshwater and terrestrial ecosystems.

BSCI279M: Modern Medicine. What causes disease? How do we diagnose and treat disease? This course will explore human biological systems, functions, and issues such as cancer, diabetes, obesity, and neurological disorders. We will explore the genetic, infectious and environmental causes of disease, and learn how various research laboratories on campus use modern scientific techniques to unravel these mysteries. The program will incorporate a variety of laboratory and active learning activities. Students will also explore the general principles of science.

CMSC198R: Introduction to Computer Programming Using HTML/JavaScript. This course provides an introduction to the internet/web capabilities and trends, and to computer programming in the context of building simple web pages. Intended for students with no previous programming experience who wish to understand the technologies making web sites possible, this course will provide a set of practical problem solving skills necessary for the development of dynamic client-side web content.
