Human biology involves the study of the human body and how it is adapted to its environment. This Human Biology (Hons) programme, offered by Teesside University, is designed to equip you with a broad-based understanding of the human body in health and disease.


It develops your knowledge of human biology, with a focus on the medical aspects of human processes, examining how the human species evolved, how we change over our lifespan, and how our bodies are influenced by food, nutrition and environmental factors.

You learn about the physiology of the major systems of the body, the impact of nutrition and environment on health, and human development and evolution.

Practical classes give you first-hand experience of biology, genetics and human physiology and anatomy. This helps you develop comprehensive knowledge and skills relevant to current industry and employer requirements. You also carry out research-based projects from a wide choice that involve either hands-on research or further study.

This degree course equips you with knowledge and understanding that will allow you to follow a career path in science, health or industry.

You study at Teesside University’s Middlesbrough campus, but have the opportunity to gain valuable experience at the new National Horizons Centre at the University’s Darlington campus which is home to a range of state-of-the-art facilities. This £22m purpose-built biosciences research, education and training facility is a focal point for the growing regional biosciences community.
