Digital Color: Style + Representation in Science
Course No. BMA264 Credits: 3.0
Faculty David Schumick
This open elective to all students, interested in techniques and concepts in traditional and digital color media. The course will focus on principles of color theory, light on form, line, texture, aesthetic impact, and accuracy of content in the illustration of scientific information and editorial content. Through research, planning, and the application of medical and scientific knowledge, the students use color to effectively communicate conceptual and observational problems. Assignments focus on the creative use of color to express specific communication objectives to a range of audiences for both majors in Biomedical Art and other majors of study. This course supplements the integration of traditional and digital illustration techniques for non majors, focused on editorial, and narrative based course work.
Educational Media Installation
Course No. BMA306B/406B Credits: 3.0
This Educational Media Installation class serves as an introduction to and the exploration of media installation and exhibition design techniques; including how physical media, and virtual interactive and linear media can be applied to educational and informational settings including Museums, Cultural Institutions and Public Education access points. Lectures will cover concepts and presentations of the history of educational display, museum arts, and how traditional media intersects with contemporary digital media, to inform and educate specific audiences at public institutions of culture/knowledge. Course work will be hands-on practice of techniques and concepts presented in lecture, discussion of readings, and critique of student projects. This class will involve both ideation and proposal development, as well as producing 1-2 educational media installations in collaboration with the curators and staff at The Cleveland Museum of Natural History, The Cleveland Botanical Gardens, and The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. The course will also incorporate field trips and guest lecturers to supplement the knowledge and practiced gained from studio practice. Projects will involve working with diverse materials, media, and electronic media.
Course No. BMA391 Credits: 3.0
A detailed description of development will be presented, focusing mainly on the developing human. Discussions and presentations will also include several developing systems that have served as useful models in experimental embryology for deciphering mechanisms responsible for producing adult metazoan organisms. Cross-registration required.
Course No. BMA225 Credits: 3.0
Multidisciplinary study of the course and processes of organic evolution provides a broad understanding of the evolution of structural and functional diversity, the relationships among organisms and their environments, and the phylogenetic relationships among major groups of organisms. Topics include the genetic basis of micro- and macro-evolutionary change, the concept of adaptation, natural selection, population dynamics, theories of species formation, principles of phylogenetic inference, biogeography, evolutionary rates, evolutionary convergence, homology, Darwinian medicine, and conceptual and philosophic issues in evolutionary theory. Cross-registration at CWRU required.
Experimental Film + Video Art
This is an advanced video course, investigating the scope of symbolic and improvisatory cinematic storytelling. Students will explore unconventional methods of video acquisition, manipulation, processing, editing and display. Students will be able to delve into media hybrids, and rather than established narrative forms, underscoring metaphorical poetic styles that inform the structure of the work. Emphasis is on the development of acute observational skills and innovative visualization techniques and encourages divergent thinking and cognitive flexibility. This course is for students who have a sustained interest in using video and digital cinema’s technologies as part of their art-making. Required of Photo Majors in the Video track. Open Elective. Prerequisite: PHV267 Video/Digital Cinema I or signature of instructor.
Experimentation in Electronic Arts II
Course No. TIM416 Credits: 3.0
Faculty Marc Tomko
This is a seminar class that guides students in the development and realization of a semester long research project in electronic arts. Projects can be in a wide range of areas, hybrid thinking and intermedia approaches are strongly encouraged. Topics in the theory and history of contemporary art related to current and emerging practices will also be discussed. The class is designed to allow for synthesis of content from earlier studies into significant finished work that will be shown in an exhibition planned, managed and coordinated by the students under the direction of the instructor. Offered spring.
Course No. BMA316 Credits: 3.0
Introductory immunology providing an overview of the immune system, including activation, effector mechanisms, and regulation. Topics include antigen-antibody reactions, immunologically important cell surface receptors, cell-cell interactions, cell-mediated immunity and basic molecular biology of B and T lymphocytes. Lectures emphasize experimental findings leading to the concepts of modern immunology. Cross-registration at CWRU required.
Genes + Evolution
Course No. BMA214 Credits: 3.0
Prerequisite(s) Principles of Chemistry
First in a series of three courses required of the biology major. Topics include: Biological molecules with a focus on DNA and RNA; Basics of cell structure with a focus on the nucleus and chromosomes; Cell cycle, mitosis, and meiosis; Molecular genetics, viruses, and gene technology; Classical and microbial genetics; Population genetics and evolution; Diversity resulting from evolution. Cross-registration at CWRU required. Prerequisite: BMA105 (CWRU CHEM105).
