The word "histology" comes from the Greek "histo" meaning tissue and "logos" meaning treatise. In practice, histology studies the form, structure, and appearance of animal and plant tissue under a microscope, as opposed to gross anatomy that involves observing structures with the naked eye. A device called a microtome is used to cut thin slices of tissue, after which the slices are normally stained to help elucidate structure.

A course in histology will involve study of the following topics:

  • Methods of histology
  • The cell
  • Classification of tissues
  • Epithelial tissue
  • Connective tissue
  • Adipose tissue
  • Cartilage
  • Bone
  • Blood
  • Muscle tissue
  • Nerve tissue
  • Cardiovascular system
  • Lymphatic system
  • Integumentary system
  • Digestive system
  • Respiratory system
  • Urinary system
  • Endocrine organs
  • Male reproductive system
  • Female reproductive system
  • Eye
  • Ear
