BIOH 104NL - Basic Human Biology with Lab

Credit(s): 4

Prerequisite(s): placement into WRIT 101 , a “C+” or better in WRIT 095~ , or instructor’s consent.
This course familiarizes students with the fundamental concepts in the systematic organization and functioning of the human body.  Anatomical features and physiological processes of each system are studied as they contribute to the overall homeostasis of the body.  Laboratory studies include anatomy (bones, muscles, brains, vessels, and heart) and physiology (membrane transport, blood, blood pressure, respiration, reflexes and the senses). (Fall and Spring Semesters)

Course Learning Outcomes: Upon completion of the course, students will be able to
  • Explain fundamental concepts in the systematic organization of the human body.
  • Identify components which comprise each system covered in the course.
  • Describe normal functions of each organ system covered in the course, including how molecular and biochemical events within structures function in the maintenance of a homeostatic condition in the human body.
  • Describe the structure of the human body including the skeleton, muscles, and some internal organs.
  • Apply scientific concepts and methods of inquiry.
