Section Description

Undergraduate Human Anatomy and Physiology is an interdisciplinary, two-semester course sequence covering the anatomy & physiology of the major systems of the human body. This course is specifically designed for students interested in the health sciences who need a strong foundational understanding of how the human body systems work, both individually and in concert. ANPS 1900 is the first course in the sequence, where we lay a foundation in cellular biology and tissue characteristics, then study the skeletal, muscular and nervous systems. Course Objectives Include: 1. Provide a common anatomical and physiological language for communication within the health science community. 2. Recognize anatomical structures and explain physiological functions of body systems. 3. Use anatomical knowledge to predict physiological consequences, and use knowledge of function to predict the features of anatomical structures. 4. Understand key physiological principles which regulate normal organ function. 5. Recognize & explain the interrelationships within and between anatomical and physiological systems of the human body. 6. Make a strong connection between knowledge of anatomy and physiology and real-world situations, including healthy lifestyle decisions and disease states.

Section Expectation

The course is lecture-based and meets three days per week. Each week there is an online laboratory assignment and a quiz on the lecture material. To perform at a high level, students should expect to spend 2 hours on course material for every hour spent in class, and another 3 hours on the online laboratory and quiz assignments.


There will be 4 exams covering the lecture and lab material; all exams are non-cumulative, and multiple choice in format. Grades will be based on a weighted average including exams, lab assignments, and weekly quizzes.
