Designed to give a general knowledge of microorganisms and their relation to human welfare with respect to both pathology and transmission of disease. Primarily pre-nursing students, some biology majors (some pre-med), and the occasional chemistry or exercise science majors. Includes a lab.
By the end of this course students will be able to:
- Demonstrate an understanding of microbiology and its connections to human health
- Demonstrate an understanding of topics such as microbial structure, growth control, microbial genetics, pathogenesis, and immunology, and describe how they relate to infectious diseases.
- Apply microbiological concepts and knowledge to solve problems.
- Apply basic concepts to practical applications in a laboratory setting
- Demonstrate an understanding of primary literature through participating in journal clubs
