Human Biology Program

The Human Biology major represents an interdisciplinary, liberal science degree and is appropriate for students who want a broad background in the fields that comprise biological sciences.


The Human Biology curriculum has strong foundations in the core biological disciplines of biochemistry, anatomy, physiology, cell biology and genetics. To complement the core curriculum, students are able to choose from several upper-level biology selective courses offered through the College of Natural Science. Human Biology selective credit can also include directed study, internship, and/or research experiences in biological and physical science. In addition, the Capstone Tier II Writing requirement (NSC 495) allows students, through their writing and oral presentations, the opportunity to integrate their knowledge of the disciplines in the core curriculum during the senior year.
