Course summary

Human Biology is the integrated study of human anatomy and physiology, including the study of the body in health and disease. It covers a wide range of topics, ranging from investigating microorganisms and the role they play in disease, to immunology and the role the human immune system plays in protecting us from these microorganisms. Students also learn about ever-changing subjects such as genetics, evolutionary biology and pharmacology. The Human Biology degree at Queen's is underpinned by the core disciplines of Anatomy, Microanatomy and Physiology (the study of the function of the human body). In addition, it provides a solid foundation in Mammalian Biochemistry, Genetics, Molecular Biology, and Microbiology. The degree is designed to allow a greater degree of flexibility in the choice of modules, in comparison to the degree in Biomedical Sciences. Specialist subject areas which can be studied in detail include Pharmacology, Topographical Anatomy, Exercise and Applied Physiology, Developmental Studies and Science Teaching. Within these subject areas we provide a range of learning experiences.
