Biology 231 Course Outcomes

Biology 231 - Human Anatomy & Physiology I

Upon completion of this course, students will be expected to be able to:

  • Explain the structures and functions of normal body systems. BI 231 specifically covers the features of a "model" cell, the primary tissues in the body, the Integumentary and Skeletal muscle systems, and the characteristics of nervous tissue.
  • Use appropriate terminology to effectively communicate information related to anatomy and physiology.
  • Recognize and explain the interrelationships between and within physiological systems of the human body.
  • Approach and examine issues related to anatomy and physiology from an evidence-based perspective (critical thinking).
  • Access, evaluate and use resources to stay current in emerging knowledge about the human body.
  • Make a connection between anatomy and physiology knowledge and practical applications.
