Human Anatomy and Physiology Survey

BIO103

Overview of human anatomy and physiology designed for non-science majors. Emphasis on the relationships between the structures and functions in each body system as well as the interrelationships among all body systems in the maintenance of homeostasis. Laboratory work complements and reinforces lecture materials.

4 Credits: 3 Lecture, 3 Lab

Corequisites:
ENL111

Prerequisites:
MTH004 or Placement by Examination

Principles of Biology I

BIO108

Focus of study on the fundamental processes of life. Emphasis will be placed on the behavior and interactions of molecules and cells as the foundation of modern medicine. Topics include the scientific method, the chemicals of life, cell structure and function, the molecular basis of inheritance, metabolism, biotechnology, membrane properties, the cell cycle, cellular communication, and the development of cellular and molecular laboratory techniques. First in a two-course sequence.

Principles of Biology II

BIO109

Introduction to Mendelian genetics and evolution as the unifying themes of biology to explore the diversity of life contained within the three domain system of modern day taxonomy. Main topics include Mendelian genetics, taxonomy, evolution, diversity of life, and ecology. Second in a two course sequence.

Basic Botany

BIO111

Fundamentals of plant science, plant anatomy, physiology, taxonomy, reproduction, and genetics.

3 Credits: 2 Lecture, 3 Lab

Human Anatomy and Physiology I

BIO115

Medically oriented study of the structure and function of the human body, using homeostasis as a unifying concept. Topics include overviews of the scientific method, chemistry of life, cell biology and tissue structure and function, in addition to detailed coverage of the skeletal, muscular, endocrine, integumentary, and reproductive systems with pertinent pathology discussion. Competency in these topics is demonstrated through oral discussion, written tests, and laboratory practical examinations. Intended for students specializing in health-related and science programs.
