Required courses

The Human Physiology curriculum has premedical courses built in as requirements. It’s an excellent alternative to a traditional biology degree, because it expands on the usual pre-med requisites with classes such as gross human anatomy, exercise physiology, cardiopulmonary pathophysiology, neuroanatomy, and neurophysiology.


The four-year curriculum includes five electives in the humanities and social sciences. It also allows for up to three additional electives you can use to go deeper into a specific discipline, complete prerequisite courses for a graduate program, or explore your other interests in any BU school or college.
