An Interdisciplinary Major Administered by the Undergraduate Biology Program

The KU Human Biology Program provides an interdisciplinary curriculum that permits students to understand humans from a variety of academic viewpoints—anthropology, applied behavioral science, biology, psychology, and speech-language-hearing.

Each Human Biology concentration offers major-level courses in topical categories that allow students to focus on areas that interest them most while retaining the interdisciplinary manner of the major. 

The broad nature of the Human Biology major can prepare students for a variety of post-undergraduate opportunities.  Our Human Biology majors go on to graduate school, medical or another health professional school, and careers ranging from laboratory technicians, biomedical product commercial developers and sales representatives, and teachers.
