BIOG 1445

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2017-2018.

Designed primarily for freshman and sophomore biology majors who desire an introduction to concepts of physiology. The course focuses on the understanding of how different biological organisms (animals, plants, microbes) perform common physiological functions. Because some study and testing involves the use of preserved specimens, students who object to dissections should pursue other course options. The course is based on individualized instruction and offers flexibility in scheduling. Completion of the course requires mastery of a set of core units. Testing is primarily by oral examination. Students who elect to take the course must be able to meet deadlines. Four formal laboratory sessions are offered with additional laboratory work incorporated into the core units.

When Offered Fall, spring.

Outcomes
  • Identify and understand the underlying principles shared by physiological systems, at the molecular, cellular, and systems levels and relate these principles to the physical and thermodynamic laws that influence organismal design.
  • Recognize the diversity of physiological systems and understand the interactions of these systems with anatomical structure.
  • Utilize critical thinking and analytical skills when addressing physiological issues to understand organisms' adaptations to their environments.
