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 Human Biology and Mathematics.
Human Biology is ideal if you’re interested in 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 the physiology of the body’s major systems as well as human health and disease
The multidisciplinary approach to Human Biology is supported by input to the programme from staff with diverse expertise in wide ranging aspects of Human Biology including Medical School staff and research and clinical staff at Keele University, University Hospitals of North Midlands and the Guy Hilton Research Centre (affiliated to Keele University and NHS - a world-leading centre for translational research), physiotherapists, geographers and conservation biologists
For the Mathematics element of the course, you will learn to use maths to develop precise and logical arguments, construct rigorous proofs, and formulate solutions to new problems. Over the years we have prided ourselves on providing a friendly and supportive environment for students. In particular, by the end of your degree, you should feel that you know the staff well and that they know you.

Human Biology graduates have pursued diverse careers including industry, genetics research, medical statistics, scientific writing, management and sales. Several Human Biology graduates have gone into Medicine while many enter into MSc or PhD degree programmes. Human Biologists also enter careers dictated by the other subject of the combined degree programme including finance, journalism and teaching. Combined Honours specialising in Human Biology are accredited by the Royal Society of Biology.
Mathematics helps you to take novel approaches to problem solving and make critical interpretations of data and text; your skills will be in demand wherever there is a need for logical thinking. An extremely wide range of career paths is open to mathematicians, where high levels of mathematical ability are desirable. This can include fields of work as diverse as finance, data analytics, teaching, engineering, medical statistics and management consultancy.
