Course Description

This is the second semester of a two-semester course that examines the structure and functions of the human body emphasizing and building upon the concepts learned in Human Anatomy & Physiology I. Topics include special senses, endocrine system, blood, cardiovascular system, respiratory system, digestive system, urinary system and reproductive system. The course includes a lab. Prerequisite: Human Anatomy & Physiology I.


Essential Objectives

1. Examine and explain the function of the special senses, including taste, hearing, equilibrium and sight.
2. Describe the gross and microscopic anatomy of the major endocrine glands and discuss their associated hormones, and the mechanisms involved in their regulation.
3. Discuss the composition of blood and the role of each of its components and be able to explain the fundamentals of immunity.
4. Describe the gross and microscopic anatomy and the physiology of the regulation of the cardiovascular system.
5. Identify the gross and microscopic anatomical components of the respiratory system and be able to describe the physiology of the regulatory mechanisms of this system.
6. Describe the gross and microscopic anatomy of the digestive system and understand nutrient digestion and absorption of food components.
7. Understand and explain the gross and microscopic anatomical components of the urinary system, including its role in fluid and electrolyte balance.
8. Identify the gross and microscopic anatomical components of the reproductive system, reproductive hormones and their effects on reproductive function as well as on general body structure and metabolism.
9. Describe diseased states and how they impact different organ systems.
10. Demonstrate proficiency in understanding, interpreting, evaluating and applying quantitative data and information.
11. Explain how knowledge created in the natural sciences has contributed to the creation, maintenance and dismantling of social inequalities and discuss the impacts of diversity and inclusion on scientific research and practice.
Lab Objectives:
1. Apply knowledge of the scientific method to:
a. formulate and evaluate real-world scientific questions;
b. ethically plan and implement accurate data collection;
c. analyze and evaluate data;
d. generate conclusions based on analysis and justify claims with evidence;
e. integrate the related work of other scientists; and
f. propose ideas for further inquiry.
2. Communicate findings in a format appropriate to the discipline and type of investigation, such as a laboratory notebook, laboratory report, observational study, field investigation report, poster, or presentation using appropriate evidence to support these findings.
3. Understand the structure and purpose of peer-reviewed publications.
4. Complete labs in the following areas: function of the senses, endocrine system, blood, cardiovascular system (including the heart and blood vessels), lymphatic system and immune function, respiratory system, digestive system, renal physiology, reproductive system, and fluid and electrolyte balance.
5. Evaluate scientific information for validity, accuracy, reliability, and methodology.
6. Identify and follow lab safety techniques that are aligned with CCV’s Chemical Hygiene Plan, Lab Safety Agreements, and chemical Safety Data Sheets (SDS).

Attendance Policy

Regular attendance and participation in classes are essential for success in and are completion requirements for courses at CCV. A student's failure to meet attendance requirements as specified in course descriptions will normally result in a non-satisfactory grade.

  • In general, missing more than 20% of a course due to absences, lateness or early departures may jeopardize a student's ability to earn a satisfactory final grade.
  • Attending an on-ground or synchronous course means a student appeared in the live classroom for at least a meaningful portion of a given class meeting. Attending an online course means a student posted a discussion forum response, completed a quiz or attempted some other academically required activity. Simply viewing a course item or module does not count as attendance.
  • Meeting the minimum attendance requirement for a course does not mean a student has satisfied the academic requirements for participation, which require students to go above and beyond simply attending a portion of the class. Faculty members will individually determine what constitutes participation in each course they teach and explain in their course descriptions how participation factors into a student's final grade.


Participation Expectations

Academic Honesty:CCV has a commitment to honesty and excellence in academic work and expects the same from all students. Academic dishonesty, or cheating, can occur whenever you present -as your own work- something that you did not do. You can also be guilty of cheating if you help someone else cheat. Being unaware of what constitutes academic dishonesty (such as knowing what plagiarism is) does not absolve a student of the responsibility to be honest in his/her academic work. Academic dishonesty is taken very seriously and may lead to dismissal from the College.



Missing & Late Work Policy

Missing and Late Work Policies

  • Interacting with classmates is an essential part of the online discussions and cannot be made up after the due date. Late participation or contribution is not accepted in the discussion forum. If you miss two or more classes/participations in discussion forum, you will FAIL the course.
  • Assignments, homework, lab work, quizzes and exams are due by the deadline noted on the syllabus, even when you need to be absent. Late work is not accepted. After a week, it will no longer be accepted for credit.
  • Plan and complete homework, assignment, lab work on time. Being absent or late is not an excuse for not completing any homework, assignment, lab work, and class work assigned for that week.
  • Extensions or late work will be granted only in extenuating circumstances. If a lengthy medical problem or other emergent personal issue will result in missing weekly discussions and/or assignments. It will be considered by case to case basis.
  • You are responsible for checking Canvas for weekly announcemnts, syllabus, and weekly class schedule. Please reach out and ask questions if anything is unclear.

Accessibility Services for Students with Disabilities:


CCV strives to mitigate barriers to course access for students with documented disabilities. To request accommodations, please
  1. Provide disability documentation to the Accessibility Coordinator at your academic center. https://ccv.edu/discover-resources/students-with-disabilities/
  2. Request an appointment to meet with accessibility coordinator to discuss your request and create an accommodation plan.
  3. Once created, students will share the accommodation plan with faculty. Please note, faculty cannot make disability accommodations outside of this process.
