Biology 32: Human Anatomy & Physiology I (4Units)
Description: This is the first part of a two-semester integrated anatomy and physiology sequence that covers the structure, function, integration and homeostasis of the human body at the cellular, tissue, organ, organ system and organism level, including the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, sensory, cardiovascular, lymphatic, immune, respiratory, urinary, digestive, endocrine, and reproductive systems. This series meets the diverse needs of students seeking careers in such allied health fields as nursing, pharmacy, and physician's assistant. It is strongly recommended that students complete the entire Anatomy and Physiology sequence at the same institution as the material may not be covered in the same semester order at different schools. Therefore, students taking one semester at one school may not be given credit for the same semester at a different school. Note: Completion of BIOL 32 + BIOL 33 is equivalent to C-ID BIOL 115S, where credit is given for both Human Anatomy (C-ID BIOL 110) and Human Physiology (C-ID BIOL 112) by completing a 2 semester blended course. BIOL 32 or BIOL 33 alone do not give credit for C-ID BIOL 110 (Anatomy) or C-ID BIOL 112 (Physiology) but only 4 units for a G.E. lab science. Course Corequisites: NONE Prerequisite: Reading - one level prior to transfer.
We have 3 hours of lecture and 3 hours of lab. You should expect to spend no less than 12 more hours on their own outside of class working on just Bio 32 (and that does not include other courses, work, family time, etc.). –Some weeks will require more, others may require less. But, if they don't have that time built into their schedule, they will not succeed. –As a result, this is NOT the semester to take 18 units, to get married, work, go on vacation, etc.
