Overview

Human biology is a vibrant, interdisciplinary field that focuses on the biology of human populations. Human biologists study diverse topics such as human health and disease, human evolution, variation and adaptability, genetics, and human ecology.

On this Human Biology degree, you’ll learn about the relationships between molecular, anatomical, physiological and anthropological aspects of human biology, with a focus on biomedical aspects of human processes, such as how we respond to infection and how drugs act on the body.

Our Human Biology degree course places significant emphasis on laboratory techniques, handling data, solving problems, writing reports and oral presentations. These elements enable you to understand scientific methods and critically evaluate scientific data, which are essential skills for a wide range of scientific careers.

Career opportunities

This BSc (Hons) Human Biology degree provides the scientific basis for a career in a range of fields, including biomedical research, teaching, and biotechnology industries. Recent graduates of this course are working in pharmacology, quality assurance, biochemistry laboratories or completing their postgraduate teacher training.
