Many fields, including those in the health professions and medical social sciences, increasingly require training in both the biological sciences and the social sciences. The Human Biology major is designed to fill this need. Biology courses in such areas as genetics, evolution, animal behavior, anatomy and physiology are most appropriate, while courses in the social sciences will depend more heavily on the student's career goals. For instance, students interested in ethnobotany might select courses in plant systematics and cultural anthropology; those interested in physical therapy would find neurophysiology appropriate; students interested in medicine and cross-cultural health and healing would take such courses as science, politics and alternative medicine; sociology of health and medicine; healers, doctors and the brain, etc. It is expected that the students will formulate a coherent program.
