BIO 232 - Anatomy And Physiology II


Course Description: This course is the second half of an intensive two-semester sequence designed to integrate the study of the structure and function of the human body. The semester includes study of the special senses, the endocrine system, cardiovascular system (blood, heart and blood vessels), lymphatic and immune system, respiratory, digestive, urinary and reproductive systems. The concept of homeostasis and its disruption by disease conditions is emphasized, providing a framework in which to integrate all systems into a functioning whole.  3 hours lecture/2 hours laboratory

Prerequisite(s): Completion of BIO 231 with a C or better.
General Education Elective(s): Science
Note(s): N/A

Course Student Learning Outcomes:
  •  Identify important molecules, tissues, organs and structures within each organ system.
  •  Explain the function of each organ system using the fundamentals of chemistry, cellular biology and histology.
  •  Relate how the structure of organs and organ systems compliment their function. 
  •  Explain how different levels of organization (chemical, cellular, tissue, organ and organ systems) scaffold to result in body functions 
  •  Predict the outcome of homeostatic imbalances.
  •  Draw conclusions based on analysis of graphic and numeric data from physiology experiments.
