Course Descriptions

CHEM 101 - General Chemistry I

This course involves an understanding of the principles of measurement, chemical equations, stoichiometry, atomic structure, chemical bonding, periodic relationships, and the chemistry of the common elements. Prerequisites: Appropriate placement score or 1 year high school chemistry with the appropriate letter grade or Corequiste: MATH129 or MATH130. 3-2-4

CIST 100 - Introduction to Information Tech

A computer course designed to introduce students to personal computers. Topics include basic concepts of computer operations, storage media, software categories, Windows operating system, computer communication devices, and Internet. The course also includes introduction to Microsoft Word, Excel, Access, and PowerPoint. Honors Option Available Introduction to Information Technology honors introduces concepts related to global computing concepts together with MicroSoft Office to develop documents, spreadsheets, databases and presentations. Through a series of projects students will learn how to develop integrated applications correlated other honors courses. 3-0-3

DATA 100 - Survey of Information Science

Survey of Information Science is a course that serves as an introduction to the cynergy between business concepts, information technology and data management. Relational and distributed database systems are used to learn how to use data to support corporate operations. Students are introduced to MIS concepts by studying industry standard systems in a variety of professional fields and regulatory environments. Business ethics and privacy law are explored using case studies. 3-0-3

MATH 160 - Calculus I

This course provides an introduction to the ideas and applications of calculus. The major topics studied are limits and continuity; differentiation; applications of differentiation; and integration. Prerequisite: "C" or better in MATH140 or MATH155, appropriate placement score, appropriate high school records or permission of the faculty. 4-0-4 Honors Option Available This course provides an introduction to the ideas and applications of calculus. The major topics studied are limits and continuity; differentiation; applications of differentiation; and integration. As an honors course, students will apply the concepts of differentiation to a global issue or concern. (4-0-4)

METR 140 - Found in Meteorology

An introductory course in meteorology covering a wide array of topics including the composition of the Earth's atmosphere, the forces governing air motion, atmospheric stability and the development of weather systems commonly observed in and around North America. Real-time data and real-world events will be explored along with the conceptual topics. 3-2-4 Co-Requisite: MATH129 or MATH130

CHEM 102 - General Chemistry II

This is a continuation of CHEM101 with special emphasis on chemical reaction, chemical thermodynamics, kinetics, equilibrium, electro chemistry, acid base chemistry, and reduction oxidation reactions. General concepts of organic chemistry will also be reviewed. Prerequisite: CHEM101 3-2-4

COMM 201 - Public Speaking

The emphasis is on speech preparation and delivery in a variety of speaking experiences designed to improve the speaker’s capability through the application of correct speech practices. Honors Option Available Public Speaking Honors emphasizes speech preparation, and delivery, with special attention paid to crafting effective academic and professional presentations on global and international issues. Speeking experiences and presentations will be designed by individuals and groups and presented to the CCBC community, the public and other appropriate audiences. 3-0-3

MATH 161 - Calculus II
