Minors Snapshot - Human Science
Human science is an cross disciplinary minor focused at the intersection of anthropology, psychology and biology. The minor provides students with a set of courses that promotes the scientific understanding of our species, Homo sapiens, as a complex biological and social organism. The human science seminar encourages students to think synthetically across the natural and social sciences, particularly with regard to the complex problems of the 21st century.
This minor is appropriate for students whose careers would be enhanced by a program that focuses on a multidisciplinary view of human nature. Such careers include the health-oriented professions, law, government, public policy and academic study in the humanities, and social and life sciences.
