Prospective Undergraduate Students

Welcome to Human Biology!


Humans share fundamental characteristics with all life – structure, chemistry, control mechanisms, behaviour, ecological context, and an evolutionary history. Thus the study of human biology must entail a sound knowledge of basic life science. Humans have also developed unique characteristics, emergent properties, arising from their highly complex brains – their intricate behaviour, communication and conceptual abilities, and social structures. So a fuller appreciation of their biology also needs an understanding drawn from disciplines such as psychology, anthropology, and sociology. The Human Biology science programs are designed to provide this understanding.
