BI 1011 - Human Biology


This course provides an introduction to scientific inquiry in the biological sciences for non-science-majors and kinesiology majors. Students will learn about the human body at the cellular, tissue, organ, and whole-body levels, which will provide the context for gaining important critical thinking skills. Students will learn to apply the process of science, to evaluate sources of information, to properly interpret data, to communicate health information, and to understand health claims made in the media-all within the context of learning about their own health. Laboratory will provide online activities, small group work, and hands-on activities that illustrate the principles under discussion.  This course serves as a pre-requisite for Kinesiology students wishing to move to BI 2030 Anatomy and Physiology I. However, any student may enroll in this course to fulfill the LAS-5 laboratory science requirement. Offered every spring. (4 Credits)
