BIO 376 Human Anatomy and Physiology 2

6 hours (3 hours lecture, 3 hours lab).

This is the second in a two-course exploration of the human body at all levels, from molecules and cells to tissues and organ systems. The laboratory portion of the course focuses on the physical structure of tissues and organs, while the lecture portion focuses on the functioning of organ systems in an integrated living context. This course focuses on the pulmonary, lymphatic, immune, urinary, digestive, endocrine, and reproductive systems; and explores the topics of nutrition, metabolism, fluid homeostasis, and embryonic development and pregnancy. The course concludes with a brief introduction to organ system pathology.




ENG 201, BIO 104, CHE 104; and BIO 356 or BIO 375


Note: BIO 356 Human Anatomy and Physiology Laboratory will be retired when the new BIO 375-BIO 376 sequence is implemented. However, students who have already taken BIO 355 and BIO 356 (BIO 356 requires BIO 355 as a pre- or co-requisite) will be allowed to enroll in BIO 376 without taking BIO 375. This is a short-term solution during the transition period.
