Course Descriptions Continued
Trigonometry
MAC 1114
This course is a study of trigonometric
functions and their inverses, solutions of
plane triangles, complex numbers, graphs
of trigonometric functions, trigonometric
equations and identities. Introduction to
vector algebra. It also develops higher level
problem-solving skills needed in many other
studies.
Calculus for Business Majors
MAC 2233
This course is for business students.
Major topics include limits, differentiation
and integration of algebraic functions,
exponential and logarithmic functions, areas,
and applications of the preceding topics to
problems in business.
Calculus & Analytic
Geometry 1
MAC 2311
This course begins with the study
of limits, continuity, derivatives, and
applications. The course ends with the study
of antiderivatives and applications of the
definite integral to area under a curve. This
course is taught with analytic geometry
throughout.
Calculus & Analytic
Geometry 2
MAC 2312
This course includes but is not limited
to the study of applications of the definite
integral, derivatives and integrals involving
exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric, and
hyperbolic functions and their inverses
and the study of formal methods of
integration.
Developmental
Mathematics I
MAT 0018
Topics include: whole numbers;
integers; fractions; decimals; decimals and
percents; geometry; pre-algebra.
Developmental
Mathematics II
MAT 0028
Topics include: exponents and
polynomials; factoring; radicals, rationals;
linear equations; graphing.
Intermediate Algebra
MAT 1033
This course reviews and extends many
of the topics in basic algebra. The student
will solve real-world problems through linear
and quadratic function modeling. A graphing
calculator is required for this course.
Mathematics for Liberal Arts I
MGF 1106
This course is intended to familiarize
the student with useful, realistic approaches
to solving real-world problems. Applications
are selected to best fit the needs and
interests of the class. An introductory
but relatively thorough look at linear
programming, from a geometric point of
view through computer-based models, is
emphasized. The remaining portion provides
the fundamentals of set theory, combinations
and permutations, probability theory and
other related topics.
Int Probability & Statistics I
STA
2023
A mathematics course that focuses
on the following major topics: Probability,
random variables, hypothesis testing,
confidence interval estimation, small sample
methods, correlation, and simple linear
regression.

Music
Music Appreciation I
MUH 2011
This course is designed as a non-
technical approach to the enjoyment of
listening to music for the student who
has little or no musical background. The
emphasis is on an intelligent listening
procedure to material drawn from standard
repertoire through the Baroque period
(1750).
Nursing
Fundamentals of Nursing
NUR 1020C
This course is not ordinarily
counted in the Associate in Arts degree.
Fundamentals of Nursing is designed to
introduce the student to selected concepts
and technologies which are utilized in the
practice of nursing. Concepts of health,
stress adaptation, biological, psychological,
and social needs provide the student with
a theoretical basis for the assessment,
planning, implementation, and evaluation
of nursing care to selected patients. Clinical
experiences are provided in both a practice
laboratory and in various health care facilities
under faculty supervision. Throughout the
course, the student is expected to develop a
beginning understanding of the various roles
and responsibilities inherent in the nursing
profession.
Pharmacology for Nursing
NUR 1142
An introductory course in
pharmacology for nurses. The outline is
coordinated to match lecture content.
Clinical Nursing I
NUR 1211C
Clinical Nursing I is designed to
introduce selected medical-surgical
concepts and to provide the opportunity
to expand and refine clinical skills acquired
in Fundamentals of Nursing. Utilizing
a systems framework, students will be
introduced to the inflammatory process
and pathological conditions of diabetes
and the ears, eyes, nose and throat. Each
system, respiratory, musculoskeletal,
cardiovascular, immunological,
hematopoietic, integumentary systems
as wellas the special needs of the medical
surgical patients are examined in lecture and
ski lls. Learning will occur in the cognitive,
affective, and psychomotor domains. In
this course, students will be expected to
formulate nursing care plans based on
thorough assessments of assigned patients
in the clinical setting and on knowledge of
pathophysiology. Application of the nursing
process supported by evidence base research
will allow students to refine and transfer
previously learned theoretical and clinical
skills to a variety of clinical situations.
Nursing in Mental Health
NUR 1520C
This course is not ordinarily counted
in the Associate in Arts degree. This course
is designed to provide the student with
the opportunity to examine mental health
concepts and related nursing interventions.
Utilizing a nursing process framework,
students are introduced to theoretical
models of behavior, classification and
symptomatology of mental disorders, and
the various treatment modalities associated
with mental health care. Emphasis is placed
on the student’s ability to apply the nursing
process with selected clients. Through
individual and group supervision, the student
is encouraged to develop awareness of his/
her own behavior and the impact on others.
