Graduate Microanatomy

This one-semester graduate course covers basic introductory principles of human cell biology along with a complete histological survey of human tissues and organs. The course is centered around laboratory experiences using the light microscope where students are not only required to identify cells, tissues and organs, but also to integrate the principles and concepts emphasized in the lecture portion of the course with what is seen under the microscope. Electron microscopy is also emphasized and is mastered through several computer assisted learning programs. The course is rigorous and challenging, and is very similar to histology/cell biology courses taught to first year medical students. Microanatomy (ANT 7210) is an 5-credit course and taught only during the fall semester. The course is letter graded and enrollment is by instructor permission only.
