    Physiology

    A physiology degree examines life processes, from the molecular and cellular level, to tissues and organs, and explains how these interact together with the environment to produce beneficial results for the organism. With its focus on human biology and additional coursework in anatomy and physiology, a Bachelor's Degree in Physiology is an excellent alternative to a traditional biology degree for anyone seeking a career in medicine. This degree is also ideal for other health care professions, from dentistry to biotechnology.

    Classes include gross human anatomy, exercise physiology, neuroanatomy & neurophysiology, and cardiopulmonary pathophysiology. Students learn to analyze specific functions of the human body in a variety of research and clinical settings. Students will also examine how disease affects bodily function, and how understanding physiology can lead to the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic strategies to combat the mechanisms of disease.
