Human Biology, Health, and Society Program


In the College of Human Ecology .

The human biology, health, and society (HBHS) program permits students to combine their interests in the biological sciences while exploring human health issues from the perspectives of both the biological and behavioral sciences. HBHS majors select the issues they want to explore in depth from Human Ecology courses that address health and the broad range of factors that influence human well-being. Issues that can be explored include biology and behavior; metabolism, genetics, and health; biology, growth, and development; and food and health policy and health promotion. Most students in this program will proceed to programs of advanced study to pursue careers related to health. This major is offered by the Division of Nutritional Sciences . More information about this program can be found on the Departments, Programs of Study and Courses section  that describes the division’s programs.
