COURSE DESCRIPTION:
     This survey course includes all the systems of the human body, emphasizing the relationship
between structure and function. It is intended for certificate-seeking students in MCC programs;
transfer elsewhere    as anatomy/physiology credit is not assured. This course includes both
lecture and lab components.

COURSE PREREQUISITE (S):
     SCIE 0900 or assessment testing
RATIONALE:
     This course is intended especially for MCC students in various health career programs. It may
also be suitable as a science elective, but BIOS 1010 would be a wiser choice for those students
whose biology background is weak.

REQUIRED TEXTBOOK (S) and/or MATERIALS:

Title:        Essentials of Human Anatomy and Physiology
Edition:     2009/09
Author:      Marieb

   TITLE: Survey of Human Anatomy            PREFIX/NO: BIOS 1310

   COURSE OBJECTIVES:
Three general themes will be emphasized throughout the quarter. Based on these, the student will be
expected to:
   1. Explain how the design of a body structure makes its function possible or more efficient.
   2. Explain how the various body systems are interrelated in structure and in function.
   3. Explain how the body’s structures help maintain a constant internal environment regardless of
external changes.
