Course descriptions from the 2016-2017 Catalog.

ZOOL 101 Principles of Zoology (3)

An introduction to the study of animal life. Basic principles of biology are covered including the role of plants as primary producers of chemical energy. The mechanisms of digestion, circulation, osmoregulation, excretion, locomotion, nerve action and reproduction in representative animals are discussed. The chemical and cellular mechanisms involved in the transmission of inheritance are studied. The evolution of plant and animal life, the interaction of organisms in their environment, food chains and trophic levels, and ecological distributions are introduced. Representative animal phyla including both invertebrates and vertebrates are studied from the viewpoint of systematics and structural characters. This course is designed to provide the student with basic information and vocabulary in preparation for advanced courses in zoology and biology. Class meets for 3 hours of lecture per week. (DB)

Prerequisite: ENG 22 with a grade of C or better or equivalent, or ENG 24 with a grade of C or better or equivalent, or qualified for ENG 100.

Corequisite: ZOOL 101L

ZOOL 141 Human Anatomy and Physiology I (3)

ZOOL 141 is the first semester of a comprehensive two-semester course which provides a thorough introduction to the structure and function of the human body. ZOOL 141 covers the gross anatomy, histology, and physiology of the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems. Students will be expected to learn details of anatomy and physiology as well as applying those details in the broader context of whole body function and homeostasis. The covered topics include body orientation, chemical level, cellular level, tissue level, integumentary system, bone tissue, skeletal system, joints, muscular tissue, muscular system, nervous tissue, spinal cord and spinal nerves, brain and cranial nerves, autonomic nervous system, and special senses. (DB)

Prerequisite: ENG 100 with a grade of C or better or equivalent. CHEM 151 or CHEM 161 or BIOC 141 with a grade of C or better, or 1 year of high school college-prep chemistry with a B or better within the last 5 years. Concurrent or prior credit in HLTH 125.

Corequisite: ZOOL 141L.

Rec Prep: Strongly recommended, MICR 130, or BIOL 101 with a B or better.

ZOOL 141L Human Anatomy and Physiology Lab I (1)

ZOOL 141L is the laboratory course of Human Anatomy and Physiology I and it provides a thorough introduction to the structure and function of the human body. ZOOL 141L covers the gross anatomy, histology, and physiology of the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems. Students will be expected to learn details of anatomy and physiology through models, dissections, and physiological experimentations. Students will also apply those details in the broader context of whole body function and homeostasis. The covered topics include body orientation, chemical level, cellular level, tissue level, integumentary system, bone tissue, skeletal system, joints, muscular tissue, muscular system, nervous tissue, spinal cord and spinal nerves, brain and cranial nerves, autonomic nervous system, and special senses.

ZOOL 142 Human Anatomy and Physiology II (3)

ZOOL 142 is the second semester of a comprehensive two-semester course which provides a thorough introduction to the structure and function of the human body. ZOOL 142 covers the gross anatomy, histology, and physiology of the endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive, urinary, reproduction systems as well as basic concepts of inheritance and development. Students will be expected to learn details of anatomy and physiology as well as applying those details in the broader context of whole body function and homeostasis. This course is the companion course to ZOOL 142L. (DB)
