*Not a baccalaureate degree program
Physiology courses provide students whose majors are in the life and health sciences with an understanding of body functions at the cellular and organ-system levels. A number of courses serve as prerequisites for majors with a healthcare focus. Students whose majors are not directly associated with the health professions are encouraged to take physiology courses as long as students satisfy course prerequisites.
Courses are either in lecture format or independent study. The lecture classes range in size from 20 to 450 students, and for the largest classes, some students receive instruction during class via remote video feed in overflow classrooms. We offer two types of introductory Physiology courses. One is a one-semester Human Physiology course, while the other extends over two semesters for students who want a more extensive view of the field. In addition, we offer a Pathophysiology course and a specialized course in Cell and Membrane Physiology.
