The undergraduate minor in human physiology requires a minimum of 15 s.h. in Department of Health and Human Physiology courses. Students must maintain a g.p.a. of at least 2.00 in all courses taken for the minor and in all UI courses to earn the minor. Coursework in the minor may not be taken pass/nonpass. Transfer credit does not count toward the minor.

Students who earn a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in health and human physiology or a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in human physiology may not earn the minor in human physiology.

The minor is designed to provide in-depth study of human structure and function. Students must complete a human physiology course plus elective coursework as indicated below. Some of these courses have prerequisites; students must complete all of a course's prerequisites before they may register for the course.

The minor in human physiology requires the following coursework.
