Overview

We are living through an age of unprecedented scientific discovery, with the mapping of the human genome and the potential of stem cell research revolutionising our understanding of how our bodies work.

At Worcester, we have adopted a practical approach to learning, with brand new laboratories equipped with the latest technologies, so you can get hands on with the topics that interest you the most.

In the next 10 years the current revolution in our understanding will begin to impact on our daily lives. By studying Human Biology at Worcester, you can help shape this future.

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.

Human Biologists, who can solve problems, look at evidence and make measured and reasoned arguments, are not only required in scientific fields but also in other fields – such as the media, retailing and finance – to ensure there is a balanced view relating to new technology and that any risks are neither under nor over stated. There is also a need for people to be able to explain these scientific arguments in ‘lay-mans’ terms, not only in teaching but also in a wide range of other vocations.

This 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. Some students are using Human Biology as a route into medical school.
