Course summary

Human Biology is the study of the structure and function of the human body, looking at how the human species evolved, how we change over the lifespan, adapt to life stressors, and how our human biology and culture influence disease risk.Human biologists address questions such as: What is the body made of? How does the body work? What factors affect our growth? Why do some people age more successfully than others? How does the body adapt to cope with challenges such as exercise, undernutrition or environmental extremes? How does our evolutionary past affect our current biology? How do our genes, lifestyle and environment affect our risk of disease?At Loughborough University, our BSc Human Biology degree is taught by staff who are all active researchers with renowned expertise that includes human population biology, global health and human development, physical activity and public health, nutrition, human genetics, and the influence of diet, exercise and lifestyle on health. Our Human Biology degree is unique in its consideration of the human from molecular to population level and in its international perspective. It is also modular, allowing choice and increasing specialisation in each year of study.
