SCI2100: Anatomy & Physiology

05/01/2023 to 04/30/2024 • Modified 10/11/2023

Course Description

This year-long course provides an overview of the structure and function of the human body, God’s ultimate creation. Students learn the terminology related to the structure of body systems and how structure facilitates healthy body functioning. Students analyze the impact of disease or injury on how the body works. All major body systems are reviewed. Students engage with lab activities and demonstrations to support the lessons and are expected to research and write on various assigned topics. While a good foundational course for students who wish to pursue medicine, physiology, or other allied health fields later, this course provides a strong understanding of the bodies given to each of us by God as a temple of the Holy Spirit.


Course waiver signed by the student if the student is over 18 years of age. If the student is under 18 years old the waiver will be signed by a parent or legal guardian.
