The course explores the interaction of biological systems and focuses on the development of the skills necessary to apply biological concepts to the solution of practical problems.
The first two years of this course allows you to develop core knowledge and understanding in the areas of human biology, biochemistry, laboratory and investigative techniques, ecology and human evolution along with the opportunity to further develop your interests in osteology or evolution in a wildlife conservation context.
The final year allows you to choose taught units from the thematic areas developed in the first and second year and undertake a research project that offers you the chance to understand a topic in greater depth than is possible with the taught units. This course involves strong components of laboratory work instilling practice to the theory learned.
