Physiology is the science of how the body functions in health and disease.  A degree in physiology provides excellent preparation for careers or graduate study in the health professions and biomedical research or related disciplines.

Additional Information


Physiology is the study of how animals work: how they breathe, feed, interact with their environment, and carry out many other activities and functions. Physiology is the knowledge that the health sciences are built on and so is especially important for students who may be thinking of becoming medical practitioners, veterinarians or health care professionals.

All courses in the major must be completed with a grade of “C” or better.
