Human Form and Function: Introduction to Anatomy
0.50 Credit(s)
Academic Course
Prerequisite: 3.0 credits of first-year studio and 1.0 credit of first-year liberal arts & sciences (including the Writing course with a minimum passing grade of 60%).
This course provides an introduction to musculoskeletal anatomy to provide a deeper understanding of the human form based on accurate observation. Students will learn to identify the shapes underlying the surface of the figure and understand the anatomic basis of movement through a study of the human skeleton, cadaver specimens and living anatomy from models and their own bodies. While the central purpose of this course is to enhance the student's understanding of what they see in the human form, this course will also place anatomical "facts" within a cultural and scientific context.
Notes: Priority registration for Illustration majors ONLY IN FALL semester.

Priority registration for this course will be lifted on Monday, July 30, 2012.
