A description of the courses offered are: Psychology 32 is a three credit course entitled "Human Growth and Development". According to the college catalog it looks at human development from infancy through childhood, adolescence and adulthood. Intellectual growth, personal and social adjustment, the relationship between physical and mental development and typical problems in various stages of the life cycle are discussed. It is a very interesting course which focuses on the individual as he/she changes and matures with age. It allows a person to be objective and look at ourselves and others as we pass through the various parts of our
development.

Science 70 -- the Science of Nutrition -- is a three credit course. According to the college catalog, it focuses on increased food processing and the addition of chemical substances in foods makes it important to understand the basic ideas of modern nutrition. This interdisciplinary course is taught jointly by the Biological Science and the Physical Science Department. Such concepts as biochemical individuality as related to nutrition for optimal health are integrated with surveys of carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism; the role of vitamins and minerals in metabolic processes and their still controversial role in orthomolecular nutrition, food selection, diet during pregnancy and infancy, special diets during illness and the safety of the food supply are discussed. One of the interesting parts of this course is that students have an opportunity to analyze their own diet.
