General Human Biology Emphasis

Learn how the Human Body Works

And prepare for a wide variety of careers.

The human body is more than complex (containing an estimated 100 million cells and involving 12 systems). It's also endlessly fascinating—and the foundation for our general human biology major. You’ll learn to communicate complex scientific concepts clearly and work within groups and independently. This degree serves as a gateway to diverse and impacting careers in biotechnology, lab management, biomedical research, healthcare, forensics and more.
