BIOL 322 - Principles of Human Physiology


Physiology is a branch of biological study that deals with the functions and activities of life, and the physical and chemical phenomena involved in all living things, including plants, animals, and single-celled organisms. Physiology investigates the mechanisms of homeostatic control, communication, and response and adaptation to the environment, etc., at the levels of organisms, organ systems, organs, cells, and molecules. These mechanisms differ considerably among organisms due to differences in structure and environment. Principles of Human Physiology explores how these physiological mechanisms are expressed in the human, using examples related to health, nutrition, exercise, and other human endeavors. This course, BIOL 315 - Animal Physiology  OR BIOL 332 - Plant Physiology  OR BIOL 330 - Cell Biology  is required as a core elective for all biology majors. This course is intended for biology majors.

Prerequisites: A grade of ‘C’ or higher in BIOL 300 - Genetics  and successful completion of CHEM 131 - Chemical Principles II . Successful completion of at least four semesters of college-level coursework (i.e., junior status) is strongly recommended.
