Human Biology

Human BiologyUnderstanding the human as a biologic organism is fundamental to a wide variety of fields which continue to be in great demand in modern society. All types of human medicine, lab science, epidemiology, pharmacology, forensics and toxicology require a foundational understanding of the structure, function, growth, psychology, development, aging and diseases of the human being.

The human biology program of study provides that understanding in both breadth and depth. Students will learn anatomy, physiology, genetics, immunology, biochemistry, microbiology, pathophysiology and biochemistry. They will also have a strong foundation in the physical sciences of chemistry and physics, as well as the tools mathematics provides in solving problems and understanding the world.
