Bachelor's degree or equivalent in biology, human biology or a related subject e. If your bachelor's program does not require a thesis, you are still eligible to apply if you have completed or will complete an equivalent course or internship. A course or an internship will be considered as equivalent if it concerns a long-term research project of at least 8 weeks combined with a written report according to good scientific writing standards. You will have to upload an official document, including project details and signed by your supervisor, to show proof of having done an equivalent course or internship. If you are currently a bachelor student, you should submit a transcript of records with an ECTS credits level of at least ECTS credits and a preliminary grade point average.
What is Human Biology, Health and Society? The HBHS major may be a good fit for students who wish to pursue careers related to issues of human health and well-being. Many health problems are complex in origin. For this reason, promoting health and reducing the risk of disease requires practitioners, researchers and policymakers who can consider the biological and physical aspects of health and illness,as well as their social, psychological, economic, cultural and political dimensions. You will be required to develop a strong background in human biology so that you can understand the physiological and biochemical aspects of health issues. The program also will require you to use perspectives from the social sciences. With these skills, and with access to a wide array of courses related to human health and well-being, you will be prepared to explore a range of health issues through a variety of career paths.
Admission to the Human Biology and Society BS major is by application and competitive, using courses, grades, grade-point averages, and personal statements as minimum standards for consideration. Only a limited number of students are admitted each year. Applicants are not automatically accepted into the major. Students must apply for major standing at the beginning of spring quarter of their sophomore year. Applications submitted after the spring quarter deadline are considered during fall quarter of the junior year only as space in the program permits.
The Bachelor of Science in Anthropology is a concentration in biological anthropology. It is designed to cultivate one of the particular strengths of Emory's Anthropology department. While the degree requires training in general Anthropology, it has a clear emphasis in the area of human biology. These foundations courses are designed to give majors a thorough grounding in all four fields of anthropology and can be taken in any order. Please check the BS Course Offerings spreadsheet for an up-to-date listing. Four 4 elective anthropology courses. Any Anthropology course or course cross-listed with Anthropology may count as an elective, subject to the rules below under "Details".

The Oxford Handbook of Economics and Human Biology provides an extensive and insightful overview of how economic conditions affect human well-being and how human health influences economic outcomes. The book addresses both macro and micro factors, as well as their interaction, providing new understanding of complex relationships and developments in economic history and economic dynamics. Among the topics explored is how variation in height, whether over time, among different socioeconomic groups, or in different locations, is an important indicator of changes in economic growth and economic development, levels of economic inequality, and economic opportunities for individuals. Its temporal scope ranges from the late Iron Age to the present. Among the issues addressed are how height, body mass index BMI , and obesity can affect and are affected by productivity, wages, and wealth.
Understanding the factors that influence human health and cause diseases has always been one of the major driving forces of biological research. With the spectacular progresses in quantitative techniques, large-scale measurement methods and with the intimate integration between experimental and computational approaches, Biology has recently acquired new technological and conceptual tools to investigate, model and understand living organisms at the system level. While the still young discipline of Systems Biology has been most widely devoted to the study of well-characterized model organisms, it has been clear since the early days of the human genome project that applications of system-wide approaches to human biology would open up tremendous opportunities in medicine.
Attribution CC BY. Would like to see even a short section on human evolution. As well, I don't see coverage of integumentary system or development. Lymphatic system is with immune system, which is fine but perhaps change title for Ch 20 to "Immune System and Comprehensiveness rating: 4 see less.
