Biology 353 An illustration of cells and tissue.


  • Course ID: BIOL 353
  • Subject: Biological Sciences

Histology is the study of microscopic anatomy and is a vital tool in modern healthcare and many research environments. In this course students will be introduced to normal and abnormal microscopic anatomy of human tissues. Coursework will emphasize the dependence of morphological form on the functional demands of cells and tissue. Upon course completion, students will be able to distinguish common histological techniques and visualization methods including light and electron microscopy, as well as typical staining procedures. Students will demonstrate the ability to describe normal human cells and tissues and to correlate structural features of cell and tissue types with functional differences. Students will demonstrate the knowledge needed to identify representative histological micrographs of normal human tissues.

Note: For successful completion of this course, it is recommended that students have completed 3 hours of Biology.
