• This course, over two semesters, introduces students to the structure and function of the human body. The first semester establishes the cellular and biochemical basis for life and focuses on the integument, skeletal, muscle, nervous and sensory systems. The second semester emphasizes the functions of the endocrine reproductive, cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, and excretory systems. Numerous integrated hands-on lab experiences will occur throughout the course. Each semester grading will be based upon 4 lecture exams, a final exam, lab exercises, case study problems, and a disease research project.
  • This is the second semester of Anatomy & Physiology.
  • This is a continuation of Biological Processes - focusing on organismal biology, physiology, and ecology.
  • This college-level course introduces students to the field of Biology. The fall semester introduces the cellular and biochemical mechanisms behind the major biological processes - photosynthesis, respiration, transport, growth, reproduction, inheritance, etc. Areas of focus include acquiring energy, cells, using energy to produce new tissue, genetics, and evolution. Hands-on lab projects will provide experience in experimental design, hypothesis testing, data analysis, and presentation. Grading will be based upon 4 lecture exams, a final exam, periodic quizzes, lab exercises, case studies, and a bioethics project.
