ASC 104 Human Anatomy and Physiology w/Lab I. This course covers orientation to the human body; basic chemistry with respect to human body functions; overview of human cell anatomy and function; body tissues; and the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems. This course explores the relationship between these systems. This course is intended to be taught at the Jefferson City campus. Prerequisite: ACT composite score of at least 18 or department chair approval. 4 credit hours.4 credit hours.

ASC 106 Human Anatomy and Physiology w/Lab II. This course builds on topics taught in the first semester and provides a comprehensive look at the regulation and integration of the human body with emphasis on the endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic, immune, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive systems. This course also explores the relationship between these systems. This course is intended to be taught at the Jefferson City campus. Prerequisite: ASC 104 with a grade of “C” or better. 4 credit hours.

ASC 110 Medical Terminology. This comprehensive introduction to medical terminology is organized by body system and specialty areas of practice. Word building rules assist in understanding the basis for combining word elements and medical terms are broken down into component parts each time a new term is introduced. This course is designed to help the student acquire a working medical vocabulary to spell, use and define medical terms. 1 credit hour.

**PHY 100 Physical Science. This lecture-demonstration-laboratory survey of the physical sciences is designed for the student with a limited science background. Students should learn about the scientific method and its application with special emphasis on scientific principles encountered in our everyday interactions with our environment. This course is intended for off-campus locations. Prerequisite: MAT 051 with a grade of “C” or better or SPM 050 with a passing grade. 4 credit hours.

**PHY 101 College Physics. This algebra based physics course has topics that may include, but are not limited to, measurement, force, work and energy, matter, fluids, gasses, heat, light, and selected topics in modern physics. Prerequisite: MAT 071 or MAT 074 with a grade of “C” or better or SPM 070 with a passing grade. Concurrent: PHY 102. 4 credit hours.

**PHY 102 College Physics Lab. This algebra based physics lab course has topics that may include, but are not limited to, measurement, force, work and energy, matter, fluids, gasses, heat, light, and selected topics in modern physics. Prerequisite: MAT 071 or MAT 074 with a grade of “C” or better or SPM 070 with a passing grade. Concurrent: PHY 101. 0 credit hours – all credit given in PHY 101.

**PHY 103 Environmental Science. Environmental science provides an integrated, quantitative, and interdisciplinary approach to the study of environmental systems. Information about physical, chemical, and biological conditions of the environment and their effect on organisms are studied to help solve ecological problems. Sustainable natural resource management will be stressed. An attitude of stewardship of natural capital will be encouraged. Prerequisites: COM 101 or COM 110 and CPP 101 or CPP 102. Concurrent: PHY 104. 4 credit hours.

**PHY 104 Environmental Science Lab. This is the science lab corresponding to the Environmental Science lecture course. The courses are designed to increase student awareness of the issues surrounding the interactions of humans with the natural environment. Basic quantitative techniques for collecting and analyzing data from environmental systems will be introduced. Prerequisites: COM 101 or COM 110 and CPP 101 or CPP 102. Concurrent: PHY 103. 0 credit hours – all credit given in PHY 103.

**PHY 201 General Physics. This calculus based traditional physics course with lab includes, but is not limited to, selected topics from classical mechanics with other material included as time permits. Prerequisite: MAT 122 or MAT 123 with a grade of “C” or better. 5 credit hours.

** This course meets the science general education requirement.
