BIOL 2751 - Human Anatomy and Physiology I


Academic Division:

Health Sciences


Academic Discipline:

Biology


Assistant Dean: Leesa Cox, MBA, PTA
4 Credit(s)
This course is an in-depth study of the principles of human anatomy and physiology. It includes the study of structure and function of the body as a whole and study of cell biology, histology, the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, endocrine, and nervous systems plus the special senses. Laboratory exercises are designed to supplement lecture topics and include microscopy, the study of models, cat and specimen dissection, cadaver study, and physiological experiments. (OTM approved course in Natural Sciences TMNS) UG
3 Lecture Hour(s);
Required Prerequisite Course(s): High school chemistry with minimum C minus (C-) grade or CHEM 1010  with minimum C minus (C-) grade; AND ENGL 0040 , MATH 0084  (Minimum grade of C- for all); OR qualifying placement test score. If the student has completed BIO121 and BIO122 OR BIOL 1730  with a minimum grade of C, then the student is not required to have high school Chemistry or CHEM 1010 .
