The Human Anatomy classes at Sierra College have a long tradition of providing excellent learning services to our students. We make a sincere effort to provide an open and supportive educational environment, which encourages and allows students to be successful in obtaining their educational goals.

We offer students a rich variety of related curricula to meet various occupational and educational needs including: Bio. Sci. 5 - Human Anatomy, Bio. Sci. 7A & 7B - Principles of Human Anatomy, Bio. Sci. 56 & 56L - Biology: A Human Perspective, Bio. Sci. 55 - General Human Anatomy and Physiology, Bio. Sci. 28 - Independent Study. Bio. Sci. 7A & 7B provides the identical course content as the challenging, one semester, Human Anatomy (B.S. 5) course, but spreads it over a two semester time frame. Accompanying the Human Anatomy course is our separate yet companion course, Bio. Sci. 6 - Human Physiology. Together they work to fill a variety of Health Science and related requirements. For more information about the all the courses offered by the department see our expanded Course Descriptions and Information page.
