Agricultural and Industrial Biotechnology

Agricultural and Industrial Biotechnology is a two semester course which provides entry-level as well as advanced training in biotechnology skills, methods, and applications. The course is laboratory based and integrates the core competencies of the life science career pathway and physical sciences with the technical skills needed for post-secondary education and/or employment in the biotechnology industry.

English IV

This is a yearlong course that will lead students through the analysis and evaluation of many forms of literature independently, in group discussion and in writing. This literature will include fiction and nonfiction essays and novels, drama, poetry, short stories and current events. Using the context of Biotechnology and Microbiology provides a fascinating framework for the study of cultural, political and religious events around the world over the course of recorded history. The influence of microorganisms on literature is vast due to the central role in many major events, wars, cuisines, tragedies, scientific breakthroughs, and much more. In addition, these fields lend themselves well to works of drama and science fiction, which students will read and respond to prior to creating their own work of literature and performing and filming their own dramas.
