The Health and Human Physiological Sciences major comprises the study of physiology and the ways in which it impacts human health and performance. Course work and research emphasize an understanding of the interplay between environmental factors, nutrition, exercise, and disease on human function, as well as the physiological mechanisms regulating human health and performance. Bolstering our progressive curriculum is a commitment to integrating knowledge from the molecular to the public health level, across all physiological systems. This is accomplished by utilizing state-of-the-art facilities and working with students as collaborators to conduct nationally and internationally recognized research. Our integrative approach to physiology provides a foundation for our students as they pursue graduate studies or embark on careers in the health professions or in biomedical research.
