BIOL 105

Basic Human Anatomy and Physiology (4-0) 4 Cr. Hrs.

Course Description

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.)
