The Minor in Human Biology
- The Global Health subplan introduce students to critical social perspectives, policy, and applications in global health.
- The Epidemiology subplan introduces students to epidemiological constructs and applies these methods to the study of real world public health challenges.
- The Health Policy subplan introduces students to population-level problems, interventions, and policy in public health.
In order to graduate with a minor in Human Biology, undergraduates must complete the minor program of study as described here, for a total of at least 25 units, with a minimum of six courses.
1. Three of the following HumBio Core courses (at least one A-side and at least one B-side class) for a total of at least 15 units.
2. Three (3) elective courses, each 3 or more units, totaling 10 or more units, within the chosen subplan. A comprehensive list of suitable elective courses can be found here.
3. Course work completed for the Human Biology Minor must meet the following criteria:
- All courses must be taken for a letter grade. (A grade of S will be accepted for courses taken in spring quarter 2020)
- All courses must be completed with a minimum 'C-' grade. (A grade of S earned in spring 2020 is by definition equivalent to a C- or above)
- Courses used to fulfill the minor may not be used to fulfill any other department degree requirements (major or minor).
- All courses must be taken at Stanford University.
