Physiology is the study of how organisms regulate the flow of energy and maintain the conditions necessary for health, survival and reproduction. It might seem that physiology and behavior are quite separate fields, but physiology and behavior interact extensively to achieve common goals.
In the neurobiology, physiology and behavior concentration, students will receive a rigorous and broad education by studying behavior and physiology from the perspectives of molecular and cellular biology, evolution, organ systems (neural, endocrine, cardiovascular, respiratory, immune, etc.) and the environment. Students in this concentration also learn to apply principles from mathematics, chemistry and physics. Discoveries are made at the laboratory bench and in the field, and students in this concentration are encouraged to participate in research projects in the labs of our faculty members.

ASU has many financial aid options. Almost everyone, regardless of income, can qualify for some form of financial aid. In fact, more than 70 percent of all ASU students receive some form of financial assistance every year.
The broad education and critical-thinking skills students receive in this concentration are well suited for a variety of rewarding careers. Premedical, preveterinary and predental students get the background and courses needed for professional school application and beyond. Many students go on to graduate school for academic, teaching or research careers in areas such as:
With a BS in this concentration, there are opportunities for technical positions in hospitals, research institutes and industry (food, dairy, chemical, pharmaceutical and biotechnology) as well as in government laboratories and agencies. The most important skills students learn in the concentration are critical-thinking and problem-solving skills that can be applied to many scientific problems and professions as well as to the challenges of daily life.
