About

The Human Biology BA program from the University of Southern California focuses on the central and cross-disciplinary concepts of human biology. Tracks within the B.A. major provide sufficient depth of knowledge and skill for entry-level employment in a wide variety of fields.

Overview

Course details

Human Biology is distinguished from the Biological Sciences degree by its focus on the human organism. This major is designed for students seeking a focused course of study in human anatomy, physiology, metabolism, and/or evolution. Various emphases are available for the BS and BA degrees, including: Physiology, Biomedical Sciences, Health and Disease Prevention, Human Evolutionary Biology, and Human Performance.

The Human Biology BA program from the University of Southern California is designed as a more flexible option, allowing students to combine studies in Human Biology with other interests, e.g. business, psychology, education, or music. In both cases, students will complete a general core of lower division science courses then select a focused track, such as biomedical science, applied physiology, or human evolutionary biology, along with complementary electives.
