You can evolve your career here

We know you have places to go, and the B.S. in Human Biology at Cleveland University-Kansas City can help get you there. The degree can help students achieve a variety of objectives.

Coursework for the bachelor’s degree can be used to earn prerequisite health science and general education courses for those seeking admission to a variety of health professions programs, including chiropractic, osteopathic, medical and medical technology, dental and dental hygiene, optometry, physical therapy and others.

Students enrolled in Cleveland’s Doctor of Chiropractic program have an additional benefit. 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.
