POPULARITY

Human biology is the 179th most popular degree in America, with 1,446 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #180 Fire Protection, and narrowly lost to #178 Marine Biology and Biological Oceanography.

The degree is offered at a total of 26 colleges across the nation, and is the 357th most widely offered degree. It is only offered at 8% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America.

It is also worth noting that 46% of colleges offering human biology are public making it a pretty accessible field.

The far west produces the most human biology graduates, largely led by University of Southern California, while it’s the Pacific-12 Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, California ranks highest, with particular help from University of California-Los Angeles and University of Southern California.

All that being said, no individual school produces more human biology graduates than Ball State University, which graduated 237 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study human biology). More students studied human biology as a percentage of total students at University of Wisconsin-Green Bay than any other college.
