Student Guide to the Human Physiology Curriculum

The purpose of the Student Guide is to provide you with a concise overview of the undergraduate curriculum offered by the Department of Human Physiology and easy access to extensive details about your major and where your major can take you.

Sometimes people are the best resources for information. Under Who to Talk to, you can find information on the location of the Human Physiology main office, our Peer Advisers (Visit them on Facebook or follow their blog), and our helpful office staff and Undergraduate Adviser.

If you are a prospective student, either still in high school or considering a transfer to the University of Oregon, you can see how best to prepare to join us.
