At Keele University, we're different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We're proud to be 'University of the Year for Student Experience' in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it's more than green and lovely, it's a place of research and academic excellence too.
At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both Education and Human Biology.
This course is ideal if you're interested in teaching biology but are looking for a particular focus on the human body and how we've adapted to our environment.
This course provides a broad understanding of issues surrounding education, as well as the physiology of the body's major systems, human health and disease.
If you choose this combination, you will develop an understanding of issues affecting contemporary education in Britain and elsewhere in the world. You will analyse the significance of historical, social, political and economic contexts for education policy and for learners from all walks of life.
A number of modules in Human Biology address issues that relate to our ever changing lifestyles, have a global perspective and have improved our understanding of health and disease. Human Biology has a multidisciplinary approach supported by input from research and clinical staff and conservation biologists. In your final year you will carry out a research project under the expert guidance of an academic staff member. You'll benefit from a supportive environment as well as fantastic laboratory facilities and equipment.
When you graduate, you might choose to do a PGCE to become a teacher. This combined course provides a superb grounding in preparing you for a career as a teacher. You will possess highly developed subject-specific and critical thinking skills that are prized for careers in schools.
Human Biology graduates combining with Education have also pursued careers in scientific writing, industry, genetics research, medical statistics, management, sales and the civil service. Several graduates have gone into Medicine. This combination also provides excellent preparation for postgraduate study.
