BIO 209 Anatomy and Physiology I 3 sem. hrs.
This course is the first course of a two-semester sequence in which the structure and function of the human body are studied using a systemic approach. Three hr/week lecture sessions address primarily, though not exclusively, body function (physiology) while laboratory sessions address structure (anatomy). Topics include the basic anatomical and directional terminology; fundamental principles of cell biology; histology; the integumentary, skeletal, nervous (including special senses) and endocrine systems. Unifying themes, such as homeostasis are emphasized throughout both semesters. Prerequisite: High school biology and chemistry. Offered every fall, spring and summer sessions.
