Major in Human Biology – B.A.

Purpose

The human biology B.A. provides students with a holistic understanding of our species with a focus on our biology, including consideration of how that biology is altered by our evolutionary history and a contemporary environment that includes natural, social, and technological components. Students explore these diverse aspects of humanity while gaining a solid knowledge of our biological foundations. The focus of the B.A. is at the organismal level, with attention to lower levels as needed, and B.A. students are encouraged to investigate human biology with a broad interdisciplinary lens. Students can focus their coursework in an area of concentration most suited to their interests. The B.A. degree allows for breadth and flexibility in the curriculum and the possibility for double majoring. Students can also fulfill the requirements necessary for a variety of post-baccalaureate health sciences and graduate school programs.

Major Requirements

Students must fulfill the IU Common Ground Education requirements in addition to the requirements for the B.A.
