Human Biology — 3610
BIO 1500 – 4 credits
Andrew W. Pitoniak

This course covers basic structures and functions of the human body. Students will learn about the chemical basis of life, cellular structure and metabolism, tissues, and an overall survey of the organ systems of the body. An introduction to human evolution is presented. Recent developments in science, medicine, and health coupled with environmental issues and their impact on health are incorporated into the course. Laboratory exercises include use of the microscope, experimentation, and hands-on investigation of organ systems. Prerequisite/Corequisite: ENG 1510. J fall, spring; C spring. Master Course Syllabus

Kirk J. Parmenter

Students will recognize, identify, describe, and classify representatives of the major phylogenetic and taxonomic groups of life on earth, surveying the three domains of life?s biodiversity and the archaea, bacteria, protist, fungi, plant, and animal realms. Students will study evolutionary history and relationships, life cycles, reproductive strategies, morphology, anatomy, physiology, behavior, and ecological roles of representative organisms. Laboratory may include one or more outdoor experiences. This survey course is appropriate for both science and non-science majors.

Anatomy & Physiology I — 3650
BIO 2510 – 4 credits
Robert J. Ratterman

This first of two sequential human anatomy and physiology courses is designed for students who have had little or no previous study of the body or the physical and chemical principles on which body structure and function is based. In this course, students will learn basic chemistry and physics, cytology, and histology. Students will study the following organ systems: integumentary, skeletal, muscular, cardiovascular, lymphatic, and respiratory. In the accompanying laboratory, students will learn basic terminology, microscopy, animal dissection, organ dissection, and experimental process and protocols. Prerequisite/Corequisite: ENG 1510; Prerequisite: CHE 1500 (or above)-unless high school chemistry was passed. J fall, spring; C fall, spring. Master Course Syllabus
