Human Biology Major (Science Program) - ASMAJ2035

HMB: Human Biology

Human Biology is a transdisciplinary field concerned with the study of human health from a biological, sociological, and evolutionary perspective. Research in human biology focuses on impact that genetic variations, development, physical fitness, and nutrition have on the general health of populations and how this compares across cultures and through history. The objective of the HMB: Human Biology major program is to provide students with a solid foundation in the life sciences as it relates to human biology and to facilitate the integration of concepts from across the social sciences and humanities, and to equip them with quantitative skills essential to research and success in this field.

*A research project from a different unit may be accepted with prior written approval from Human Biology if the course is not counting toward a different program.

Human Biology Major Notes:
1.
Courses can only count toward one requirement, even if listed as options to multiple requisites of the program.
2. Not all courses listed have priority enrolment for Human Biology majors. Students are responsible for checking priority of courses and meeting course prerequisites for courses they wish to take.
3. The Human Biology major cannot be paired with any other Human Biology Program managed major program.
