BIOH 301 Human Anatomy and Physiology I

[formerly BIOL 341 Human Anatomy and Physiology I]

3 cr. Prerequisites: CHMY 121 or CHMY 141 and one General Education course chosen from the Life Sciences category (BIOB 121 is preferred). Recommended:  CHMY 123. (F)  Includes detailed study of the physiology of cells, tissues, bone, muscle, and the nervous system.  This is primarily a course for pre-professional students and those with a major in the health sciences.

 

BIOH 302 Human Anatomy and Physiology I Lab

[formerly BIOL 343 Human Anatomy and Physiology I Lab]

1 cr. Prerequisite:  One General Education course chosen from the Life Sciences category or concurrent enrollment in BIOH 301. (F)  Includes detailed study of the anatomy of skeletal, integumentary, muscle, and nervous systems.  Involves examination of body parts at both the gross and microscopic levels.

 

BIOH 311 Human Anatomy and Physiology II

[formerly BIOL 345 Human Anatomy and Physiology II]

3 cr. Prerequisite: A grade of “C-” or better in BIOH 301, or consent of instructor. Corequisite: BIOH 312. (Sp)  Includes detailed study of sensory physiology, cardiovascular system, respiratory physiology, gastrointestinal system, renal physiology, endocrinology, and reproduction.  Lab required.

 

BIOH 312 Human Anatomy and Physiology II Lab

[formerly BIOL 346 Human Anatomy and Physiology II Lab]

1 cr. Corequisite: BIOH 311. (Sp)  Includes a study of physiology of the nervous, cardiovascular, endocrine, respiratory, renal, gastrointestinal, and reproductive systems using the laboratory approach.

 

BIOH 382 Fundamentals of Medical Histology

2 cr. (1 lec/2 lab/wk) Prerequisite: BIOH 301 or consent of instructor. (Odd Sp)  Provides a focused study of microscopic structure and function of human cells, tissues, and organs.  The course integrates both lecture and laboratory experiences.  Laboratory experience will emphasize identification of specimens via light microscopy.

 

BIOH 383 Biology of Human Reproduction

2 cr. (2 lec/wk) Prerequisite: BIOH 301 or consent of instructor. (Even Sp)  Provides a focused study of the structure and function of the various human reproductive organs.  Emphasis will be placed on the roles of the endocrine and nervous systems in influencing virtually all aspects of human reproduction.  Clinical correlations involving typical pathologies will be included.
