ZOO 2010 - Human Anatomy & Physiology I

This course is the first semester of a two-semester introduction to the structure and function of the human body. This course will cover cellular physiology, histology, and the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems.

Credits: 4

Instructional Method Lecture and Lab

General Education Requirement: Life Science
Comments: Students must complete both ZOO 2010 & ZOO 2020 for course equivalency at UW. Otherwise, course does not meet UW’s Human Culture requirement unless transferred as part of an Associate degree.

One semester of college biology or chemistry, or instructor permission

Minimum Student Competencies
Upon completion of ZOO 2010 Human Anatomy and Physiology I , the student will:

  1. Describe the basic biochemical principles upon which systems of the human body operate.
  2. Apply the fundamental vocabulary of the discipline and anatomical terms properly.
  3. Outline the principles of cell structure and function including membrane transport, bioenergetics, protein anabolism, and the cell cycle.
  4. Identify the human tissues, describe their features and functions, and exemplify their locations.
  5. Discuss in detail the organization, structure, function, and regulation of the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems.
  6. Identify the macroscopic and microscopic structures of the integumentary, muscular, skeletal, and nervous systems.
  7. Explain homeostasis and discuss it in relationship to each of the organ systems covered.

Program Outcomes
Upon completion of ZOO 2010 Human Anatomy and Physiology I, the student will:
