SCB 260- General Microbiology

Course Description:

This course offers an introduction to microorganisms found in nature, industry and disease. The student is introduced to virology, bacteriology, immunology, epidemiology, pathology and other related areas of microbial physiology. The laboratory will deal with the isolation and identification of common pathogenic and nonpathogenic organisms utilizing techniques of staining, culturing, fermentation reactions and microscopic inspection.


I was able to link this course to my intended major by building a foundation of what microorganisms are.  Through this course i was able to understand how microorganisms proliferate and  when linked to my nursing studies I understand why certain intervetions are instituted and why other interventions are not.
