Human Biology - Undergraduate Minor

The Human Biology minor is intended to provide academic recognition for students who wish to focus a significant amount of attention on courses that deal with human beings from a wide variety of biological standpoints. Thus, course work may encompass topics representing a range of viewpoints such as biological function, human ecology, human origins, and psychology. Successful completion of this minor will provide students with a valuable interdisciplinary perspective on the human condition. This program consists of a minimum of 18 hours, that includes a minimum of 12 from within the Biology Department and a minimum of 3 outside the department. Successful completion of the minor will be certified by the Biology Department. A grade of C- or better is required of all minor courses.
