Human Biology (B.A.)
The B.A. in Human Biology is designed for students interested in human biology and its application to allied health care professions (e.g., 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 law, public health and health policy fields with a strong science background. It provides a biology-enriched program for liberal arts students by requiring basic genetics, neuroscience, ecology, and human reproductive physiology within the major; psychology, sociology, nutrition, and geography courses outside the department.
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.
