Undergraduate Courses

Summer 2020 Schedule 

Extended Session 1:  May 26 - July 17



BIO358 – Biology and Human Social Sexual Behavior (DEC H, Implications of Science, Upper Division, SBC: ESI, STAS)

Description: Major features of human social and sexual behavior are examined from a biological perspective. Insights from ethology, evolutionary biology, and neurobiology are synthesized into a picture of human nature and behavior. Implications of this picture for human sexual and social behavior are considered.
Faculty: Paul M. Bingham, PhD and Joanne Souza, PhD


Section 30: This course is an asynchronous online course except for the  Two Mandatory Synchronous exams given in the evening on 6/16 and 7/14. STUDENTS MUST HAVE RELIABLE INTERNET, A COMPUTERS, A WEBCAM AND A MICROPHONE TO TAKE THIS COURSE.    


BIO202 – Fundamentals of Biology: Molecular and Cellular Biology
  (DEC E, Natural Sciences, SBC:STEM+)
 

Description: The fundamentals of cell biology, biochemistry, and genetics. The biochemical and molecular bases of cell structure, energy metabolism, gene regulation, heredity, and development in living organisms from bacteria to man are discussed.
Faculty: Vitaly Citovsky,PhD, and Joanne Souza, PhD


Section 30: This course is an asynchronous online course except for the  Three Mandatory Synchronous exams given in the evening on 6/10, 6/24, and 7/15.   STUDENTS MUST HAVE RELIABLE INTERNET, A COMPUTERS, A WEBCAM AND A MICROPHONE TO TAKE THIS COURSE.

Extended Session 2:  June 22 - August 15

BIO310 – Cell Biology   

Description: The cell is studied as the unit of structure, biochemical activity, genetic control, and differentiation. The principles of biochemistry and genetics are applied to an understanding of nutrition, growth, and development.
Faculty: Susan Erster,PhD, and Joanne Souza, PhD
Section 30This course is an asynchronous online course except for the  Three Mandatory Synchronous exams given in the evening on 7/7, 7/28, and 8/11.   STUDENTS MUST HAVE RELIABLE INTERNET, A COMPUTERS, A WEBCAM AND A MICROPHONE TO TAKE THIS COURSE.  

    

BIO314 - Cancer Biology

Description: We will examine the biology of cancer. Emphasis is on molecular and cellular events, such as regulation of gene expression, genome maintenance, cell growth and death, differentiation, cell-cell recognition, signaling, and homeostasis, that are frequently disrupted in cancer. Recent advances in diagnosis and therapy will also be discussed. 
Faculty: Susan Erster,PhD, and Joanne Souza, PhD
