Business Law - MGT 201
An introductory course designed to develop a basic understanding of the legal aspects of business. The functions and operations
of the court system are discussed. Formation of the single proprietorship, partnership, and the corporation types of business
are examined. Contracts, their formation, legal effect, and discharge; trust and agency; employer-employee relationships; and
government regulation are also discussed. (3 hours lecture).
Financial Accounting - ACC 101
Students utilize the rules of debits/credits in preparing the step-by-step process incorporated in a full accounting cycle.
Analysis and preparation of basic financial statements are included. Students will be able to complete an in-depth accounting
of certain assets and liabilities.
English Composition I - ENG 101
This course consists chiefly of expository writing with emphasis on rhetoric, grammar, and mechanics, which may be studied as
ends themselves. Effective revision strategies will be taught. Instruction in the use of the library and the writing of a
library research paper are included, and attention is given to literature (essays, poems, short stories, etc.) as time
permits. (3 hours lecture).
English Composition II - ENG 102
This writing-intensive course complements English Composition I (ENG 101). The main purpose is to develop critical thinking and
expository writing skills through the study of and written reaction to various professional texts, literary, persuasive, or
some combination thereof. The work will consist chiefly of written essays, with emphasis on audience awareness, ownership,
clarity, organizational methods, and logic. The course will also include a research component. (3 hours lecture). Prerequisite:
Communication Foundational Experience.
Algebra - MAT 125
This course will start with a review of basic algebra (factoring, solving linear equations and inequalities, etc) and will introduce
various functions to include polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic and radical functions. Techniques of graphing these functions
will also be explored. Additionally students will study systems of equations and sequences and series.
Calculus I - MAT 241
In this introductory calculus course, students will use practical problems to develop the concepts of calculus. Students will gain an
appreciation of the usefulness of calculus to a broad range of applications. The concept of a function, including polynomial, rational,
exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric, the derivative, applications of differentiation and the definite integral will be covered.
Calculus II - MAT 242
This course is a continuation of Calculus I (MAT 241). Students will use practical problems to develop the concepts of integral
calculus and to introduce differential equations. By focusing on the ideas behind solving the problems, the student will be able
to solve a broad range of problems. Definite and indefinite integrals and first-order separable differential equations and their
applications will all be approached from the graphical, numerical and analytical points of view. (4 hours lecture).
Modeling for Decision Making - MAT 110
This is an introductory course in using mathematics as a basis for making logical decisions. The course will include the algebra
of linear equations and inequalities and the solution of linear equations needed to solve linear programming problems geometrically.
Other topics include set theory, matrices, basic statistics and the analysis of graphs.
Precalculus - MAT 180
This course will cover topics that prepare a student to study in many different technical venues. Topics covered will prepare the
student for further work in more advanced math courses particularly the Calculus sequence. Topics that covered include a very brief
review of algebra concepts, with a more in depth treatment of linear equations and inequalities, quadratic equations and inequalities,
graphing and modeling basic functions to include polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric. Additionally
students will study systems of equations, conic sections, analytic geometry, sequences, series, binomial expansion and an introduction to limits.
Statistics - MAT 210
This is an introductory course in statistics, designed to familiarize the student with numerical and graphical data distributions;
exploratory data analysis; correlation and linear regression; the normal and binomial probability distributions; confidence intervals
and some hypothesis testing. Prerequisites: Quantitative Foundation
Biology I - BIO 101
This introductory course serves as a foundation for other life science courses. Students will review the process of science and the
properties of life. The diversity of organisms across all domains and kingdoms will be studied using an evolutionary perspective.
Students will learn about the structure and function of major organ and tissue systems in animals and plants. Ecosystem structure
and evolutionary processes will also be covered. (3 hours lecture, 3 hours lab).
Biology II - BIO 102
This course provides students with a broad overview of the foundations and scope of molecular, cellular, and ecosystem-scale
biological science. Most of the material covers dates from the last 100 years. Students will develop the ability to view the
natural world from a wide range of size perspectives, and to understand how submicroscopic, microscopic, and macroscopic aspects
of the natural world interact. (3 hours lecture, 3 hours lab).
Social Science Courses
The Adirondacks - HST 215
This course will examine the environmental, political, and cultural history of the Adirondack Mountain region and provide students
with an analytical framework for interpreting the landscape and history of our regional environment, the natural world and mankind's
relationship to it. (3 hours lecture).
Psychology - PSY 101
This course introduces students to the field of psychology. It sets modern psychology in a meaningful context, examining how the discipline
has developed from its early traditions through present-day schools of thought. Students will explore the fundamental question of nature
versus nurture in the development of the human mind. They will examine human perception, how it can differ from one culture to another, and
the manner in which learning occurs. The course ties what we know about cognition, thought, language, and intelligence to the everyday lives
of students. Thus, the classroom is viewed as a laboratory. (3 hours lecture).
