BIOL 2113

BIOL 2114



Anatomy & Physiology is a two-semester sequence course (BIOL 2113 & BIOL 2114) which focuses on the form and function of the human body.  The courses cover the study of tissues, all eleven organ systems, and physiological systems, such as immunity and fluid balance.  A list of the Learner Outcomes is found below or you can look at the course description in the online catalog (click here).  The links above will help the student find information on lecture and lab schedules as listed in the various syllabi, lab practical descriptions, links to professors' websites and links to other helpful sites, including those used in lab exercises.  The prerequisite for BIOL2113 is a "C" or better in Principles of Biology I (BIOL1106) or equivalent and for BIOL2114 the prerequisite is a "C" or better in BIOL2113 or equivalent.

Learner Outcomes for BIOL 2113 & BIOL 2114:

At the conclusion of the course, the student should be able to:

a)     define and describe terms used in chemistry and cell biology as they relate to anatomy and physiology.

b)     use terms in anatomy and physiology appropriately when discussing biological concepts.

c)     demonstrate the ability to synthesize, analyze, compare and contrast information regarding the human body.

d)     demonstrate the ability to solve problems in anatomy and physiology based on an accumulation of past and present learning.

e)     explain cellular and systemic physiological processes.

f)      demonstrate an understanding of physiological processes occurring in the body and their relationship to homeostasis.

g)     demonstrate an understanding of the interrelationships between body structures and functions and identify how they fit together.

h)   demonstrate the ability to access resources to gather information about the human body.
