CIP Code: 45.0201
College/Department or College/School: College of Liberal Arts / School of Language, Culture, and Society

Description:  

The Biocultural option focuses on the ways evolutionary biology, political-economy, ecology, and culture interact to influence human health and behavior, over time and in cross-cultural perspective.
