BSc (Hons)Human Biology

Why choose this course?

This course will provide you with an in-depth knowledge of the complex structure and function of the human body in both health and disease, and will give you the chance to understand how changing the function of your body systems has a dramatic impact on your health. You will look at how the body works normally, by studying physiology and homeostatic mechanisms, and will see how these systems change from birth to old age. You see how metabolism is important for the growth and normal functioning of the body, as well as examining embryology and the developmental origins of human beings. The principles and concepts of the evolution of anatomically modern humans, symbolic language and culture are also explored in depth as part of this exciting course.

Career path

Biology has become one of the most important of the Sciences, with huge technological gains being made. This course opens up many possibilities in a broad range of careers, which can vary from teaching Biology or Human Biology in Schools to working in industrial or academic medical research. You may wish to pursue a career in medical sales and marketing, or follow specific pathways such as scientific journalism. Opportunities also exist in related fields such as medical publishing, medical education, health promotion, embryology or industrial developments.

What skills will you gain?

After completing this course you will be able to demonstrate knowledge of human shape and anatomy and understand embryological and foetal development of the human.

You will also be able to demonstrate an understanding of the control of normal physiology and homeostatic mechanisms and the changes occurring in physiological systems from birth to old age, plus appreciate the importance of metabolism and nutrition in growth and normal functioning of the body.

Finally, you will understand the principles and concepts of the evolution of anatomically modern humans, symbolic language and culture
