Human Biology Track
The Human Biology Track in Anthropology prepares students for careers in medicine, dentistry, physical therapy, optometry, podiatry, and other allied health fields. Human Biology students major in Anthropology but take departmental courses primarily in biological anthropology. The courses deal in human genetics, human paleontology, human physiology, and human reproductive biology and behavior. They stress an evolutionary perspective on humans and integrate molecular, whole-organism, population, and species level data on humans.
The Human Biology Track also includes required courses in biology, cultural anthropology, human anatomy, and physiology. This program also encourages students to take health/biology-related courses in psychology, sociology, history, political science, and the humanities to fulfill admission requirements to professional schools in the health sciences. As a result, our students have the broad, liberal arts background that many health science professional schools find attractive.
