BIOL 105 - Human Biology


Number of Credits: 4
Human Biology provides an understanding of the human organism through physical, cultural, genetic, and social viewpoints for students in general studies or certain allied health fields. In this course, the student will learn a basic overview of human anatomy and physiology, how the various systems of the body function together, how the human species has developed and its interrelationship with its environment. This course does not meet the prerequisite requirements for BIOL 210  or BIOL 215   (Fall, Spring & Summer Only) Three hours lecture each week. Two hours laboratory each week. Four Credits. Four billable hours.

GENERAL EDUCATION Category: Biological and Physical Sciences

Pre-requisite(s): eligibility for ENGL 101 , plus exemption/completion MAT 095  with a minimum grade of C or better.
Course Objectives: Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
  1. Relate basic chemical structures to physical structures and processes of cells. (GE1, GE2, GE3, GE4, GE5, GE6, GE7, GE8)
