(4 SEMESTER HRS)
745-6437 ext. 5457
COURSE DESCRIPTION: Human Anatomy and Physiology I covers the structure and function of the human body. Included is an orientation of the human body, the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems also, the special senses. Dissection, histological studies, and physiology are featured in the laboratory experience. Laboratory is required.
NOTE: Prerequisite for this course is BIO 103 with an earned letter grade of “C”. Student should have basic knowledge in cell structure and function, basic chemistry, cell division and metabolism and basic understanding of how to use a compound light microscope.
