About

The intricacies of life — from the processes and activities of organisms to the anatomy, physiology, pathology, and neurobiology of the human system — are the subject of the physiological sciences. The Physiological Sciences program at Marquette University provides a foundation in biology, cell biology, and genetics before moving into the specialized areas of neurobiology and physiology. 

Overview

During the Physiological Sciences program at Marquette University, you'll have the opportunity to work with great professors, including one who is a world authority on locomotion and one who works with astronauts to study the effects of weightlessness on muscle atrophy and how exercise in space can prevent it.

Designed for physical therapy students with an interest in basic and applied research, this specialized track mirrors the requirements of the physiological sciences major and adds physical therapy courses to your senior year.

Marquette's physiological sciences major is relatively new but is already a hot major for students interested in studying the complexities of human physiological systems.
