Anatomy

A professor lectures to a class.
Overview

Anatomy Minor (Minimum of 21 Credit Hours)

The anatomy minor is designed for those who want an in-depth knowledge of the human body. A more thorough knowledge of anatomy will give students that plan a career in the health sciences, research or education a solid background in the anatomical sciences.
