Graduate Courses

  • BIOL-T 570 Evolution (3 cr.) Online Collaborative Course. Provides a rigorous exploration of the theory of evolution; the conceptual core of biology. Topics include origins and history of life: the interplay of heredity and environment in shaping adaptations; molecular, behavioral, and social evolution; patterns of speciation, extinction, and their consequences; methods of inferring evolutionary relationships among organisms.
  • BIOL-T 574 Immunology (3 cr.) Online Collaborative Course. This course will introduce graduate students to immunology, focusing upon cells, molecules and mechanisms operating in the normal immune system and then assess the dysfunction associated with diseases and immune disorders.
  • BIOL-T 582 Advanced Field Zoology (3 cr.) Online Collaborative Course. This course will cover areas related to ecology - specifically in the areas of wildlife biology, wildlife management, and conservation biology. There will be some bias towards vertebrate and behavioral ecology.
  • BIOL-T 586 Principles of Ornithology (3 cr.) This course provides an introduction and overview over the biology, ecology, evolution, and behavior of birds. As a student in this course you will learn about the diversity of bird life in world, with focus on Indiana. This course will help you recognize the role of birds in the ecosystem and how they impact and interact with other organisms. You will also learn about the different ways birds are adapted to flight and to survive in all types of habitats. In terms of bird diversity, you will learn how to identify Indiana bird species by sight and sound. We will also discuss how humans impact the diversity of birds in the world, especially in Indiana. To learn observational techniques and how to identify birds, you will be required to keep and maintain a field journal with drawings and descriptions.
  • BIOL-T 587 Principles of Ornithology (3 cr.) Online Collaborative Course. This course provides an introduction and overview over the biology, ecology, evolution, behavior, and conservation of birds. Students will also learn to identify common birds by sight and sound. Regular independent bird watching trips are expected as well as a field research project on local bird diversity.
  • BIOL-T 591 History of Life (3 cr.) Online Collaborative Course. This course examines the evolutionary history of life based on the fossil record and genetic codes of existing organisms.  It also explores the history of changing philosophies regarding life's origin, from creation story-based religious views to the non-teleological views of modern revolutionary theory.
  • CHEM-T 510 Inorganic Chemistry (3 cr.) Online Collaborative Course. This course introduces fundamental concepts of inorganic chemistry including descriptive chemistry, bonding in coordination chemistry, organometallic chemistry, special topics in inorganic chemistry and biological inorganic chemistry.
  • CHEM-T 530 Organic Spectroscopy (3 cr.) This is a course in Organic Spectroscopy. This course is intended to give students a more complete picture of how spectroscopic methods (IR, UV, NMR, mass spectroscopy, and other methods) are used to elucidate the structure of complex organic molecules.
  • CHEM-T 540 Physical Chemistry (3 cr.) Online Collaborative Course. This course will touch on all the fundamental areas of Physical Chemistry. Emphasis is placed on content that expands the students' knowledge in the key areas and relates to concepts that are likely to be taught in introductory chemistry courses.
  • CHEM-T 550 Introduction to Biochemistry (3 cr.) Online Collaborative Course. Protein composition and structure, Enzyme kinetics, catalytic and regulatory strategies, Carbohydrates, Nucleic acids, Lipids and cell membranes, Transducing and storing energy - metabolic cycles, Responding to environmental changes.
  • CHEM-T 560 Environmental Chemistry (3 cr.) Online Collaborative Course. Chemical topics in environmental chemistry.
  • CHEM-T 570 Nuclear Chemistry (3 cr.) Online Collaborative Course. The fundamentals of nuclear chemistry and radiochemistry are covered. Topics may include nuclide types (origin, distribution), nuclide stability (quantum structure, binding energy), nuclear reactions (radioactive decay, fusion, fission), applications of nuclear phenomena (nuclear power plants, radioisotope dating, tracers, analytical techniques), and hazards (nuclear power plant accidents, biological effects of radiation).
  • CHEM-T 590 Chemistry Capstone (3 cr.) Online Collaborative Course. Integration of knowledge and understanding from the literature that transcends subdisciplinary boundaries of chemistry.
  • MATH-T 620 Topics in Topology/Geometry (3 cr.) Online Collaborative Course. Students will develop graduate-level knowledge in essential concepts of Topology/Geometry including topics in Euclidean and non-Euclidean Geometry, Point set topology, Differential Topology, Differential Geometry, and other topics in Topology/Geometry.
