Basic principles of organic and biochemistry as applied to human body systems. Subjects covered include: Structure and reactions of organic compounds such as alcohols, carboxylic acids, amides, ketones, and aldehydes; protein synthesis, structure, and function; enzymes; nutrition; and the chemistry of energy production. Intended for Kinesiology or Nursing majors. Lab covers the basic laboratory principles of general, organic, and biochem¬istry as applied to human body systems. Complements the topics covered in CHEM 101 and CHEM 106 with experiments focused on molecular modeling, chemical synthesis, enzyme catalysis, and the characterization of carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins.
Credits: 5 semester units (3 Lecture/2 Lab)
Course capacity: 30 students
Course length: 16 weeks
Course cost: The costs of the course and lab kit are handled by BHMT. Any replacement lab kits should be coordinated with the school and are at your own expense (estimated cost $327). The electronic textbook is provided as part of the course cost. A hardcopy textbook is available for purchase at your own expense (estimated cost $190). You are also responsible for the calculator needed for this course. TI-30Xa calculator is required.
Organic Chemistry & Biochemistry is intended for BHMT participants who need this course to fulfill a prerequisite course requirement for an academic program such as Nursing, Kinesiology, Allied Health, or other healthcare programs. It is your responsibility to determine whether this course is a required prerequisite for the academic program you intend to pursue.
BHMT participants are responsible for making sure selected course(s) will transfer to the accepting institution.
WARNING: If this is your first online course or you are recently returning to school BHMT highly recommend you take a college preparatory course CHEM 101 Preparatory Chemistry or UNIV 104 – College Gateway Program before registering for a course with lab. If you are already enrolled in a Lab Science class, you will not be able to enroll in additional Lab Science courses.
Note: If you have registration questions or technical issues please email Elizabeth Rosales, CSUSM Program Services.
