Session Offered:

Summer Credit 4.0

Prerequisites:

Description:

BIOL 20300/20400 is a two-semester 8-credit course designed to give the student a basic understanding of the anatomy, organization and function of the human body. There will be introductory lectures on the basic concepts of biochemistry and cell biology before the major topics of the course are dealt with. For the two semesters, these topics include the organization of the human body; muscle and bone; the nervous system (including the special senses); the cardiovascular system; respiration; digestion; metabolism, excretion, fluid; electrolyte and acid-base balance; the endocrine system; reproduction and genetics. The subject matter will be related to clinical and health-related issues.The laboratory is a hands-on experience designed to complement the lectures. Many labs will use computer assisted data acquisition equipment to carry out experiments on muscle, heart and brain. This is the first semester of a two-semester sequence. BIOL 203 is a prerequisite for BIOL 204. NOTE:  Not available for credit toward graduation for majors in the Department of Biological Sciences.
