This Unit of Study has four main components: lectures, practicals, workshops and HBOnline activities. The unit of study provides an introduction to human anatomy and physiology. It includes an overview of cell and tissue structures, the skeletal system, nutrition, digestion and excretion. Human Biology will also look at how our bodies respond to environmental stimuli with respect to the endocrine, nervous and immune systems. After discussion of reproduction and development, it concludes with modern studies and research prospects in biotechnology and human genetics. This unit of study, together with BIOL (1001 or 1911 or 1002 or 1902), or MBLG (1001 or 1901), provides entry to Intermediate units of study in Biology. We recommend students check the prerequisites for the Intermediate units of study in which they intend enrolling to ensure entry requirements are met.
Participation, Laboratory report, incl. draft (24%), quiz(zes) or test (15%), and final exam (50%), case study presentation and participation (11%), satisfactory attendance (Faculty of Science requirement is 80%).
