About Human Biology

Inextricably Linked

We study humans across disciplines from every angle.

In science, nothing is studied without context. You won’t just learn about humans: you’ll learn how our environment impacts us and how we impact the environment. There’s no better example of this than COVID-19. Like the researchers who worked on the vaccine, you’ll have a rewarding, important career with a degree in human biology.

Ready for Grad School

"The university has provided me with excellent counselors and advisors that have guided me in each of my steps to med school. I applied to a Bellin internship through the University. I was able to be more engaged in the medical field thanks to that internship. I did research through one of the Advanced microbiology courses which helped me understand the necessity and scarcity of antibiotics."
