Zoology 1 Introduction to Zoology IB
Zoology 2 Zoology for Pharmacy Students This course is designed more particularly for pharmacy students but it can be taken by others. It is a course which will deal primarily in General Zoology, taking up the different organs and systems which are found in animals especially the vertebrates, together with their functions. Likewise, a rapid survey of the different phyla of animals together with examples of various groups are taken up, but special emphasis shall be given to those forms which are of particular importance to pharmacy.
