Finding Courses

Finding Courses for your Human Biology Major

The Human Biology student designs their own unique Course of Study by identifying courses that are both relevant to academic interests and appropriate for the major’s Breadth and Depth requirements. We have developed tools for students to aid them in their search for courses relevant to our eight Areas of Emphasis.  These tools are not meant to offer an all-inclusive, complete list of possible courses but give you guidance on what is possible. Course changes made after declaration require approval by a member of the advising program, details found on Advising & Declaring.


Navigating HumBio Courses

These course and topic flow charts for each Area of Emphasis map out all of the Human Biology upper division courses (HumBio courses numbered 100+) and other commonly used courses by areas of emphasis. They can offer a full overview of the Human Biology curriculum and familiarize students with the range of possible courses for their own course of study. See Area of Emphasis Course Flows


Example Courses of Study

Explore by Area of Concentration topic the versatility of the HumBio Major by viewing actual HumBio student-composed courses of study. See Example Courses of Study


Course Search Tool 

Use the tool below to search for courses by criteria such as title, instructor, and HumBio Area of Emphasis. The Course Search Tool is not meant to offer an all-inclusive, complete list of possible courses for the Areas of Emphasis. This tool searches for courses with tags that you can also use to search on Explore Courses, see list of course tags here.
