BS in Human Biology

Turn your human biology degree into a career

We know you have places to go, and the B.S. in Human Biology at Cleveland University-Kansas City can help get you there.

A human biology education leads to job opportunities

Want to become a health coach, physical therapy assistant, or a dentist? Human biology degrees help start health care careers and many more. CU-KC’s pre-allied health coursework for the Bachelor of Science in Human Biology can be used to earn prerequisite health science and general education courses for those seeking admission to a variety of health professions programs, including pre-chiropractic, pre-osteopathic, pre-medical and medical technology, pre-dental and dental hygiene, pre-optometry, pre-physical therapy and others.

Making your biology degree work for you

CU-KC understands that students need options when it comes to health care studies and their future. That’s why we offer specialty areas of emphasis for our human biology degrees.

  • B.S with emphasis in Anatomy
  • B.S with emphasis in Health Promotion
  • B.S. with emphasis in Physiology
  • B.S. with emphasis in Public Health
  • B.S. with emphasis in Research

For more information, please see Human Biology Degree Program Information.

Why not get two health care degrees rather than one?

Cleveland University-Kansas City can help you maximize the overall value of your education with a dual degree. Some states require chiropractors to also hold a regionally accredited bachelor’s degree as part of their pre-licensure process. To help in that effort, Cleveland students are able to pursue the B.S. in Human Biology and Doctor of Chiropractic degrees independently or concurrently.

See our Concurrent DC/BS Program page for more information.
