Human Biology Major

  Course Requirements

The Human Biology major is designed for students interested in human biology and its application to allied health care professions, such as occupational therapy, genetic counseling, and, with careful choice of electives, physician assistant and physical therapy programs.

This curriculum is also suitable for students who wish to enter the public health and health policy fields with a strong science background.

It provides a biology-enriched program for liberal arts students by exposing students to courses in genetics, neuroscience, ecology, human reproductive physiology, psychology, sociology, nutrition, and geography.

Students in this track may want to consider a minor in a social science discipline such as psychology, sociology, or anthropology. Students interested in applying to medical, dental, optometry, or veterinary schools should follow a B.S. track.
