Bachelor of Science in Integrated Human Biology

Undertake research as an undergraduate while acquiring a strong understanding of human biological sciences.

Program Overview

The Bachelor of Science in Integrated Human Biology is more than just your typical undergraduate biology program. As a student, you’ll study physiology, anatomy, cell biology, biochemistry, and genetics and draw connections between each, rather than studying them individually. This integrated approach leads to a strong understanding of biological science and critical thinking skills, which are critical to a prolific career in any career in health care or biology.
