|BIOL 105||Basic Human Anatomy and Physiology||(4-0) 4 Cr. Hrs.|
This course introduces fundamental terminology and concepts that will enable students to acquire a basic understanding of the structure and function of the human body. The anatomy and physiology of the major human organ systems and their association with health and disease is explored. BIOL 105 is intended for students in allied health programs that do not require a laboratory course in human anatomy and physiology.
(A requirement that must be completed before taking this course.)
- Successful completion of
- BIOL 050 or high school introductory general biology within the last five years.
Upon successful completion of the course, the student should be able to:
- Compare the different levels of organization of the human body.
- Apply anatomical and directional terminology to the human body.
- Explain cellular structure, function, and metabolism.
- Identify the major tissue types and their functions.
