Description 1

This major explores how cellular and tissue structure and function contribute to the unique physiological roles of each body system (cardiovascular, digestive, endocrine, immune, muscular, nervous system, renal, reproductive, respiratory, and skeletal), and how these systems have important integrative relationships that underlie the overall physiological functioning of healthy humans.

Description 2

Understanding the physiology of individual body systems and their integrative functional relationships allows students to appreciate the complexity of human health and how the disruptions of these systems lead to human pathology. Students pursuing pre-health careers, especially clinical exercise physiology, physical therapy, occupational therapy, cardiopulmonary rehabilitation, and similar health areas will all benefit from this program.
