Overview

Studied as a joint honours degree, you will explore the latest scientific developments in how our bodies operate, alongside an extensive knowledge of nutritional principles.

At Worcester, Human Biology will provide you with a practical approach to scientific study and allow you to work with brand new laboratories equipped with the latest technologies.

The Human Nutrition programme offers you the opportunity to explore the connections between food constituents, diet and health, with an emphasis on practical experience and real life scenarios. You will look in detail at the functions of nutrients and other bioactive compounds.

Career opportunities

As a Human Biologist at the University of Worcester, you will be able to develop a wide range of intellectual, practical and social skills that are much in demand by employers. These include primary research and critical evaluation skills, communications skills, both written and oral, and a range of technical and IT skills such as the use of DNA technology, IT-based analysis, data analysis, and applied statistics. The Human Biology element of the course will prepare you for a number of different career paths including work with the police, laboratory practice, medical and laboratory sales and postgraduate degrees. Additionally some students are using Human Biology as a route into medical school.

Human nutritionists who can look at evidence and make measured and reasoned judgements are required in scientific and health fields, but also in the media, as nutritional journalists and presenters; in retailing, as managers of health food shops and as advisors in the larger supermarkets; and in finance, to ensure there is a balanced view relating to new food technology and that any risks are neither under or over-stated. Many other openings are also available in such areas as: education (healthy school food programme), food production (advisors to growers and animal husbandry), and food provision (advisors or trainers of catering staff).
