Human Biology Advising Information

Fall 2018 Advising Update » 

Students who have officially declared a human biology major should meet regularly with a human biology advisor, ideally once a semester.  Exploring students who go to the Undergraduate Advising Center for advising also are invited to meet with a human biology advisor, particularly to draft a degree completion plan and to discuss major course details and career options. 

How to Make an Advising Appointment
