Do you want to know more about humans – How we evolved? How we have sex and reproduce? Our anatomy and physiology? What our skeletons record about our lives? How our hormones influence our decision-making? Why we’re obsessed with status? What happens when we die? Why we are so social and cooperative? As a Human Biology and Behaviour student at Kent you can study human evolution, physiology and anatomy, the psychology and behaviour of humans and non-human primates, skeletal biology and functional anatomy, and forensic anthropology. This unique and exciting course brings together biology anthropology and psychology to explores what it means to be human, equipping you with a suite of transferable skills and advanced training in scientific research methods that prepares you to be strongly competitive for employment opportunities or for further study.

Where and how did humans evolve? Do monkeys have language? What are friends for (and why do we sometimes fall out with them)? How does your nervous system work? How does disease affect the body? What parallels can we draw between the biology (and psychology) of humans and that of apes and monkeys? How does our social environment impact our behaviour? Do ‘natural-born athletes’ really exist? How can we tell a person’s age at death just from their bones? When and where did Neanderthals and humans interbreed?
