BIOL-105 - Human Biology
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. Prerequisite: eligibility for ENGL-101, plus exemption/completion MAT-095 with a minimum grade of C or better. This course does not meet the prerequisite requirements for BIOL-210 or BIOL-215. Three hours lecture, two hours laboratory each week. Four credits. Four billable hours. Offered Spring, Summer and Fall terms only. GENERAL EDUCATION
