Students must enrol concurrently in parts 1 and 2 of this unit in either semester. The unit can be modified to suit, as far as practicable, each student's background, interests and planned future career. The student may monitor parts or all of appropriate undergraduate units in human biology offered by the School. Additional material including assignments, literature reviews and laboratory work may be included. Students are also exposed to the various experimental approaches to human biology conducted in the School.
Students are able to develop an ability to explore human ecology, variation and adaptation in relation to current health status, wellbeing and social concerns.
Typically this unit is assessed in the following ways: (1) written assignments; (2) examinations; and (3) seminars. Further information is available in the unit outline.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
