Human Biology

Bachelor of Science in Human Biology 

The Bachelor of Science with a major in human biology is a versatile degree that provides the student with extensive preparation for graduate or professional studies in any field that works with the human organism. While the natural sciences are emphasized, students receive a thorough background in social sciences, cultural studies, and the humanities. In addition, graduates in human biology have an understanding of health care disciplines and the qualifications they demand.

Students interested in medicine, dentistry, physician assistant studies, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and other health-related professions that require baccalaureate or graduate degrees will receive a thorough preparation for admission to professional school by completion of the four-year program of study. Upon completion of the four-year program of study at Kettering College, the student may apply to a professional school or university to complete the required graduate study necessary for entry into the chosen profession.

who just teach and professors who genuinely care for your success.”

– Rachel Mack, human biology student.

Human Biology 3+2 Accelerated Program

Highly qualified Kettering College students enrolled in the human biology major (minimum 3.70 cumulative GPA and minimum 3.70 science GPA) who express a desire to accelerate their studies and meet admission requirements for the Master of Physician Assistant Studies (MPAS) degree are eligible to apply to the human biology 3+2 accelerated program.

This program is designed for students who begin human biology courses as freshmen at Kettering. Students transferring to Kettering College will find it difficult to schedule the required course sequence to be eligible for the accelerated courses. A student with an excellent academic record for the first three years as a human biology major at KC, desiring to prepare for the physician assistant profession, may be given early admission to the two-year MPAS program at Kettering College.
