SCIENCE » Anatomy


This upper level science course is designed to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of how the organ systems within the human body work together to maintain homeostasis, and how a failure in homeostasis results in a disease or health issue. The course was designed with a focus on hands-on and creative assessments that cultivate students’ critical thinking, research, and communication skills – both orally in class discussions and in written forms.  Each unit includes laboratory work in the form of traditional labs and/or simulation activities, disease case studies, the study of specimens, and research-based projects.  Students should be prepared to conduct research, work in small groups and independently, write scientifically, and communicate their knowledge in a variety of methods.
