Do you want to know more about humans? How hormones influence our behaviour? What are friends for? What happens when we die? Human Biology and Behaviour uniquely examines the evolution, anatomy, psychology and behaviour of humans and our living and fossil primate relatives. In this degree, you will answer a variety of compelling questions about sex and reproduction, social systems and primate language. You will gain academic and practical skills that prepare you for careers in health and science, community and social services, and education and communications fields. Shape your degree outside the classroom with extracurricular activities such as open lectures which attract global figures and our thriving student led societies. Choose to study Human Biology and Behaviour with a Year in Professional Practice at Kent because: • you’ll learn beyond your lectures. Potential excursions to animal parks, archaeological sites and to collections of ancient skulls and bones. • you’ll have access to excellent facilities including the 3D imaging palaeoanthropology lab, human skeletal biology lab and the new mini CT-scanner within the Imaging Centre for Life Sciences. • you’ll build up academic and practical skills that prepare you for careers in health and science, community and social services, and education and communications fields. • you’ll gain ongoing support through our employability team, regular workshops and alumni talks, as well as our dedicated academic adviser and peer mentoring scheme.
Venture into a combination of biological anthropology with human biology and psychology. You will develop an integrated understanding of how human beings are shaped by, and interact with, their social and physical environments, and you will acquire an appreciation of their social and biological diversity.
