Course Description:

This course provides a comprehensive study of the basic principles of microbiology. A brief survey of the history of science is given. Emphasis is placed on understanding the variety and differences of microbes and their relationship to humans. Laboratory study accompanies the course and the successful completion of lab exercises is a partial requirement for the course. Prior learning in Basic Chemistry Workshop or biology equivalent is strongly recommended. Prerequisite: Basic Algebra.

Essential Objectives:

1. Compare the theoretical aspects of historical development in the field of microbiology to current concepts of microbiology.
2. Identify macroscopic and microscopic morphology of common microbial isolates.
3. Apply the theoretical and practical aspects of physical and chemical methods used to control microorganisms.
4. Explain the relationships that can exist between host and microorganism.
5. Discuss the disease process as it relates to common microbial pathologies.
6. Demonstrate proficiency in understanding, interpreting, evaluating and applying quantitative data and information.
Lab Objectives:
1. Demonstrate how to perform safe procedures in all aspects of the student laboratory.
2. Demonstrate the theoretical and practical aspects of staining bacteria.
3. Demonstrate the theoretical and practical aspects of culturing organisms in order to identify common microbes.
4. Write a correctly formatted laboratory report including relevant sections on (1) purpose of the lab, (2) materials and procedures, (3) data and observations, (4) graphs and charts, (5) calculations, and (6) conclusion and analysis.

Academic Honesty: CCV has a commitment to honesty and excellence in academic work and expects the same from all students. Academic dishonesty, or cheating, can occur whenever you present -as your own work- something that you did not do. You can also be guilty of cheating if you help someone else cheat. Being unaware of what constitutes academic dishonesty (such as knowing what plagiarism is) does not absolve a student of the responsibility to be honest in his/her academic work. Academic dishonesty is taken very seriously and may lead to dismissal from the College.
