 IHB program requirements

The IHB minor consists of courses in human form and function, human evolution and biological variation, human behavior, and the roles humans play in local and global ecosystems. Students will take one core course in each of these four areas and three electives from at least two of them. At least four of the courses taken for the minor must be at the upper- division level (3000 or above).
