Anatomy & Physiology II

Learn about the reproductive system and the stages of human development. Anatomy & Physiology II also covers the lymphatic system and the three lines of defense our bodies have against pathogens. Gain a knowledge of the cardiovascular, digestive, respiratory, and urinary systems as well as nutrition, metabolism, body fluid balances, and aging.

It was time for my next big thing.

StraighterLine made it very easy and convenient to take all the prerequisites I needed to take to advance my career in Science. I liked how flexible it was. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Things I love about StraighterLine

Time for me

I was able to fit classes into my free time and spend 10 hours a week when I was available.

Variety of courses

I took five courses with StraighterLine and saved thousands of dollars on my degree.
