MAJOR: HUMAN BIOLOGY
Although the title might indicate a focus on the biology of the human body, the Bachelor of Science in Human Biology actually has a much broader emphasis. Students in this degree plan receive an interdisciplinary education about the relationship between biology and society. This option requires 32 semester hours of core studies in a variety of areas within biology, including cellular and molecular biology, physiology, and ecology/evolution. In addition, the student takes 15 semester hours in one area of specialization such as genetics, health and disease, human impact on the environment, or urban development. The different options for specialization allow students to tailor their educational goals for a future in administration, law, public affairs, or health.
