Principles of Human Anatomy

Announcements - Fall 2010 Semester
Open, Closed or Special Laboratory Study Hours

Most Recent Update: Wednesday, Dec. 1, 2010

Please understand that we are working to provide you this extended study service and to communicate times for additional study, as accurately as we can. Many classes and instructors share the Anatomy laboratory for their classes, and we are attempting to coordinate these open times for your benefit. Please acknowledge that this special service and privilege is extended to you, beyond "normal" practices. Very importantly, remember to "take care" of your laboratory and study materials in the lab, to insure these additional study times continue for the semester. Thank you for your cooperation.

Please check back "here" for any "last minute" cancellations or changes to this special open laboratory schedule, before you come to campus. If the main building doors are locked when you come, go to the end door facing the Theater building and closest to the Anatomy lab. Thank you.

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.
