Program Overview

Studying Data Science and Human Biology will give you the opportunity to develop a breadth of knowledge and a wide range of skills in two fascinating subjects.

Initial modules will provide you with a grounding in the theoretical underpinnings of both disciplines. In data science you will explore the fundamental concepts underlying the analysis of complex data together with techniques for applying these using a contemporary programming language. You will look at data science and its relationship with business analytics, statistics, machine learning and artificial intelligence and examine the processes techniques used to extract information from raw data.

In human biology you will explore a mixture of core modules that will provide you with the fundamentals of human biology that underpin all areas of biological study. You will explore compulsory modules in physiology, anatomy and the fundamentals of biology - from a cellular and molecular level to the evolution of complex living organisms.

During your first and second year, you will take laboratory classes most weeks to develop practical, analytical, observational and interpretative skills. Building on the knowledge you have learnt in both subjects, you will progress to explore advanced topics in your second and third years. From AI, data visualisation and deep learning to investigating the real life applications of human biology in the diagnosis, treatment and management of human disease - you will develop the advanced knowledge and skills to carry out your own independent studies.

The programme will culminate with the opportunity to unleash your creativity and apply the techniques you have acquired throughout your studies by completing a final year project. Types of projects you may undertake include; lab-based, systematic reviews, bioinformatics, pedagogic or outreach work. Throughout your project you will be supported and supervised by an academic who has expertise in your chosen area of study.
