What are the main differences between the general biology and human biology major?
I am going to be a senior in high school this coming year, and am trying to decide a major I want to pursue in the future. I know I want to pursue a line of biology, and while researching, the human biology major looked promising. However, I would like to know more about the major and what it consists of (as well as how it differs from general bio) before I make any solid decisions. Thank you!

This is a forum more for advice on how to get into college and advice for academics, but I am sure someone else will be able to help you. I know nothing about biology unfortunately but this is my advice: google the major or “differences between bio and human bio major” or go to your top college’s website and look at their different biology majors. On the website there will be a description of each of them which will give you some input and some more info so you can make an informed decision.
