Courses

SL 120. Functional Anatomy and Physiology Lab. 1 Hour.

Functional Anatomy and Physiology Lab is a 1 credit lab that students take at the same time as taking the lecture part of the course, SC 120. It is laboratory designed to give the non-science major knowledge of the human body and its relationship with the environment. Topics covered parallel the lecture topics in SC 120 and include: the chemical basis of life, the anatomy & physiology of all organ systems, growth, development, heredity and biotechnology issues.

SL 180. Prin of Gen Chemistry Lab I. 1 Hour.

This is a laboratory class.

SL 181. Chemistry Lab I. 1 Hour.

This is a laboratory class.

SL 182. Chemistry Lab II. 1 Hour.

This is a laboratory class.

SL 191. General Biology Lab I. 1 Hour.

This laboratory course is to be taken concurrently with SC 191. It is designed to reinforce the fundamental biology concepts discussed in lecture as well as introduce students to laboratory procedures and the basics of the scientific method.

SL 192. General Biology Lab II. 1 Hour.

This laboratory course is to be taken concurrently with SC 192. This course is designed to provide hands-on experience with plant and animal diversity, comparative anatomy and physiology, as well as the collection and analysis of lab and field data.

SL 210. Marine Biology Laboratory. 1 Hour.

Marine Biology Laboratory must be taken concurrently with Marine Biology. Laboratory activities focus on the organisms and ecosystems in the Gulf of Maine and include field trips to local marine habitats as well as laboratory investigations of local flora and fauna. Prerequisite(s): SC 191 or SC 192.

SL 221. Anat/Physiology Lab I. 1 Hour.

This is a laboratory class.

SL 222. Anatomy/Physiology Lab II. 1 Hour.

This is a laboratory course. Prerequisite(s): SL 221.

SL 240. Ecology Lab. 1 Hour.

This lab focuses on ecological research principles and is designed to complement and reinforce the topics discussed in SC 240. The labs will include reading primary literature, case-studies, identification of local flora and fauna, and field and laboratory data collection and analysis.

SL 241. Microbiology Lab. 1 Hour.

This is a laboratory class.

SL 242. Biotechnology Lab. 1 Hour.

This is a laboratory class.

SL 271. Physics Lab I. 1 Hour.

SL 272. Physics Lab II. 1 Hour.

This is a laboratory class.

SL 285. University Physics I (Laboratory). 1 Hour.

University Physics I is the first course in a two semester, calculus based university physics sequence. The goal of this course is to introduce students to the concepts of force and motion, work and energy, simple harmonic motion, and waves. The class meets for three hours each week in lecture, two hours each week in recitation, and two hours each week in the lab. This course assumes no prior background in physics. Prerequisite(s): MS 181.

SL 286. University Physics II Lab. 1 Hour.

This course continues the development of the basic physical concepts begun in SC285. Topics include electricity, magnetism, and optics. The class meets for three hours each week in lecture, two hours each week in recitation, and two hours each week in the lab. Prerequisite(s): MS 181 and (SC 285 or SC 271).

SL 291. Cell Biology Laboratory. 1 Hour.

This course is the hands-on laboratory component of SC 291 (Cell Biology). It is designed to introduce the techniques used to study cell structure and function. By the end of the semester you should be familiar with cell identification, cell culture, transfection, protein purification, SDS-PAGE, and Western blot procedures.

SL 299. Topic/. 0-3 Hours.

This course is intended to provide the opportunity to offer introductory courses in laboratory science that would not normally be a part of the Husson curriculum. As such the topics will depend upon the interests of students and faculty.

SL 381. Organic Chemistry I Lab. 1 Hour.

This is a laboratory class. Prerequisite(s): SL 182.

SL 382. Organic Chemistry II Lab. 1 Hour.

This is a laboratory class. Prerequisite(s): SL 381.

SL 393. Physical Chemistry Lab. 2 Hours.

This course is a hands-on laboratory component of the SC 393, covering topics in kinetics, thermodynamics, transport, and spectroscopy. The laboratory exercises apply physical methods to studies of complex physicochemical phenomena. Computer simulations of molecular properties complement the measurements. Three hours of laboratory per week. Prerequisite(s): SL 182 and SL 272.

SL 394. Analytical Chemistry Lab. 2 Hours.

This course is a hands-on introduction to the fundamental techniques of analytical chemistry. It covers sample treatment and volumetric, gravimetric, electrochemical, chromatographic, and spectroscopic analytical methods. Three hours of laboratory per week are designed to supplement and reinforce the knowledge gained in the SC 394. Prerequisite(s): SL 182.

SL 399. Topic/. 0-3 Hours.

This course is intended to provide the opportunity to offer 300-level courses in laboratory sciences that would not normally be a part of the Husson curriculum. As such the topics will depend upon the interests of students and faculty.

SL 499. Topic/. 0-3 Hours.

This course is intended to provide the opportunity to offer advanced courses in laboratory science that would not normally be a part of the Husson curriculum. As such the topics will depend upon the interests of students and faculty.
