The Edward C. Morgan Anatomy Tutorial Lab, located in the Science Lab Building (SLB) on the main Temple campus, offers tutoring to all anatomy students enrolled in Introduction to Human Anatomy & Physiology (Biol 2404), Human Anatomy & Physiology I (Biol 2401), or Human Anatomy & Physiology II (Biol 2402) at Temple College.

Tutoring hours vary each semester and are posted within the D2L Anatomy shell.

For more information about the lab, contact Dr. Honey Golden at or 298-8413.

The Biology Department strongly promotes and encourages student research. While many university undergraduate students have numerous opportunities to join a research lab, these opportunities are limited and often entirely absent at the community college level. Temple College is proud to provide research opportunities to our community college students too!

Research is the fun part of studying biology! In collaboration with a faculty advisor, students develop and execute a unique research project. Students then have the opportunity to present their results in a professional setting and publish in scientific journals.

Research Methods in Biology (Biol 2389) is offered in the fall and spring semesters and is highly recommended for students that are interested in conducting biological research at Temple College. For more information about this course and research opportunities, contact Dr. Jason Locklin.
