  • IPHY 3020 - Next Steps: Preparing for Life After Graduation
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2024
    Helps students prepare for what comes after graduation. Topics include exploring careers; how to write a resume or CV; interviewing tips; how to build your portfolio; asking for letters of recommendations. This course is specifically designed for juniors starting to prepare for the next stage post-graduation. Same as EBIO 3020 and MCDB 3020.
  • IPHY 3430 - Human Physiology
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Fall 2018 / Spring 2019 / Spring 2020 / Summer 2020 / Fall 2020 / Fall 2022 / Fall 2023
    Introduces the physiology of the endocrine, nervous, muscular, cardiovascular, respiratory, urinary, digestive, reproductive and immune systems. Each system will be integrated into the larger contexts of homeostasis and adaptation during pathology and challenges. Students must enroll in lecture and recitation sections. Degree credit not granted for this course and IPHY 3470. Recommended prerequisite: IPHY 3415.
  • IPHY 3435 - Physiology Lab
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Fall 2018 / Spring 2019 / Fall 2019
    Introduces laboratory experience in selected aspects of human physiology with a focus on applying the scientific method in experimentation. Same as IPHY 3437.
  • IPHY 3437 - Virtual Human Physiology Laboratory
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2021 / Spring 2022 / Fall 2022 / Spring 2023 / Fall 2023
    Introduces online laboratory experiences for select aspects of human physiology using laboratory simulations. This online laboratory is meant to complement IPHY 3430. As an online course, this lab may not fulfill pre-requisites for post-baccalaureate, graduate, or other allied health programs. Please consult with your Biology advisor before enrollment. Same as IPHY 3435.
  • IPHY 3470 - Human Physiology 1
    Primary Instructor - Summer 2018 / Summer 2019
    Focuses on scientific thinking, cell physiology, neurophysiology, endocrinology, immunology and musculoskeletal physiology. The first semester of a two-semester sequence for IPHY and NRSC majors only. Department enforced requisites: one year of general biology (lecture and lab); statistics equivalen. Recommended course: IPHY 3415. Degree credit not granted for this course and IPHY 3430. Those who took IPHY 3430 prior to becoming IPHY major, will only receive credit for IPHY 3470.
  • IPHY 4010 - Seminar in Integrative Physiology
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Fall 2018 / Spring 2019
    Introduces a small group of students to current research topics in integrative physiology, evaluation of current research and discussion of critical issues. May be repeated up to 6 total credit hours when topics vary. Department enforced prerequisite: IPHY 2800 or equivalent.
  • IPHY 4440 - Endocrinology
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2023 / Summer 2023 / Fall 2023 / Spring 2024
    Introduces mammalian endocrine system. Provides a thorough analysis of chemical communication by hormones and related bioregulators with emphasis on the major endocrine systems such as the thyroid, gonad, pituitary and the brain. Students must take lecture and recitation sections. Same as IPHY 5440.
  • IPHY 4720 - Neurophysiology
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019 / Summer 2019 / Spring 2020 / Summer 2020 / Spring 2021 / Summer 2021 / Spring 2022 / Summer 2022 / Spring 2023 / Summer 2023 / Spring 2024
    Explores the function of the nervous system, including how the properties of neurons influence nervous system activity, how the nervous system controls the activity of muscles and how the sensory effects of muscle activity influence the function of the nervous system. Same as IPHY 5720.
  • IPHY 4930 - Internship
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Fall 2018 / Spring 2019
    Provides an opportunity for field/laboratory work in a variety of different settings. Consult with faculty for approval. May be repeated up to 6 total credit hours. Department enforced prerequisite: completion of at least two of the major core classes.
