CSBLĀ 5030. Basic Histology. 1 Credit Hour.

This course is designed to provide students in the Anatomical Sciences track of the M.S. degree program an introduction to microscopic cell structures and relevant functions followed by study of the four basic human tissues (epithelial, connective, muscle and nervous tissues). In addition, a few specialized tissues (blood cells, bone, cartilage and lymphoid tissues) will be examined in depth to develop skill in understanding function in relation to viewing microscopic anatomical features. Overall, this course is meant to provide a foundation for the understanding of the microscopic architecture of the organ systems of the body and the role these play in normal activity and disease processes. Lectures, independent study (self-directed learning), and laboratory experiences will be used in teaching the fundamentals of human histology.
