Many of the students interested in physiology, or how organisms function, have interests in health and medicine; physiology is a popular major for pre-professional students. Other students find themselves attracted to careers in research, including biotechnology, developmental biology and environmental physiology.
Students interested in this area might consider any of the Biology Department majors, especially physiology.
We offer preparatory advising for students interested in the following professional programs: pre-medical, pre-optometry, pre-dental, pre-physical therapy, pre-veterinary medicine
We also have a special program in Diagnostic Genetics (administered jointly, listed in the Bulletin under Clinical Sciences) that may be of interest.
