Overview

The Human Biology (Hons) programme from Keele University provides a broad understanding of the physiology of the body’s major systems as well as human health and disease and the relationship between the human body with the environment. You might explore the impact of nutrition and the environment on health, how humans in turn impact on the environment, and specialised topics such as human parasitology and human evolution.

Keele’s multidisciplinary approach puts human biology in context, so you’ll have input from experts ranging from clinicians, physiotherapists, nutritionists, geographers and conservation biologists. There are opportunities for studying abroad and for work experience; you could even add in a year’s industrial placement to create a four year degree.

You can add a year with an Applied Life Sciences work placement or one year Study Abroad Placement between the second and third years.

Careers

96% of Keele graduates were in a job or further study within six months of graduating (DLHE, 2017)

Graduates from this programme have opportunities in a wide range of fields, with career paths in science, health, industry or the media.

You might become a nutritionist, dietitian, health promotion specialist, clinical molecular geneticist, counsellor, adult nurse, sports therapist, or technical author.

Several Human Biology graduates have gone into Medicine while many enter into MSc or PhD degree programmes. Alternatively, you could pursue opportunities in postgraduate research, teacher training, occupational therapy, journalism, nursing or medicine.
