    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    One of the most challenging and rewarding courses I have taken to date. Professor Kinseth works alongside Professor Allison Shearer to create a one of a kind course where students are pushed our of their comfort zones to utilize new ways in studying in order to understand the context behind anatomic terminology and its functional application to the human body.

    Course highlights:

    The course is divided into two sections where Professor Kinseth teaches the lecture portion and Professor Shearer teaches the lab portion. By having the course divided into two sections, students are required to learn the lecture and lab material simultaneously. By participating in lecture and lab, I was able to develop skills in reading scientific content in an analytical manner in order to identify anatomical structures on human models, specimens and histological slides. Additionally, I was able to learn how to dissect specimens by using proper techniques in order to identify tissues, muscles and structures and to then explain its functionality in relation to the various body systems.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Students who take this course must be willing to commit not only time but patience in understanding the course material. When starting the course, utilize ALL of the study tools and resources Professor Kinseth and Professor Shearer provide in their syllabus. Take time to meet with them and participate in the Anatomy Learning Center (ALC) where anatomy models and tutors are available to help explain concepts and identify structures on the models. Most importantly, have a strong willingness to prioritize and organize your weekly schedule for studying. With that being said, it is important for students to also learn how to also create a strategic plan when enrolling in courses each semester. Do not take this course with other science-heavy courses (e.g. Microbiology, Physiology or Organic Chemistry). It is in your best interest to take this course alone and/or with less-demanding courses (e.g. psychology, english or Sociology). Professor Shearer hosts an orientation at the beginning of every semester for students to get an in-depth overview of the entire course and engage in a panel with students who previously took and passed the course. I participated on the student panel two times where I answered questions and provided advice to students who were planning to take the course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course uses collaborative learning. We use tools in order to learn which muscles perform certain actions and how it looks and feels to do so. We also dissected a human cadaver, as well as cats to help us learn nerves, muscles and bones.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course are dissecting of cats as well as viewing and dissecting of the human body. Seeing the actual muscles, nerves and bones puts the information in your brain in a more in depth way.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would suggest for future students to be present in the class because there is a lot of information that students will be exposed to and tested on.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is based on Anatomy alone without the physiology attached to it, which provides for a more in denote understanding of the subject. I found this class very interesting and it is very fun to learn about the human body. This professor is one of a kind, she expects a lot of her students, but we are adults here and when it comes to courses such as these we should be at the level wanting to be there and not having to be there.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights for me with this specific course was the Lab portion. I was always so excited to walk in be able to touch and play with the human body models, and there was always so much to do the time went by very fast.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    My biggest piece of advice when taking this course would be to make it the only science class you are taking. Don't set yourself up to fail because this class is time consuming and you will need to dedicate more than 12 hours a week in order to receive a positive outcome in the end.
