- About this minor
- A Minor in Anatomical Sciences will provide an integrated and deep understanding of the structure and function of the human form in both health and disease. The sequence of units in the Minor will explore the body plan from development through to ageing utilising low-power examination of serial sections through human tissue to imaging technologies. Specific topics include human functional anatomy; variation and evolution; embryology and growth; microscopic structures of cells and tissues; structure and function of systems. The Minor is delivered using a mixed format including lectures that present the basic concepts of human structure and function from an evolutionary perspective, tutorials and workshops to discuss these concepts and evaluate and apply learnt knowledge to real-world scenarios. Students who undertake this Minor will also develop the skills for effective communication and engagement with community, government and industry groups involved in public health policies. For students taking a minor which shares units with their other unit sets (majors or minors): in order for minors to be recognised on academic and graduation documents, students may only have a maximum of one unit overlapping between their unit sets.
- Students are able to (1) understand the evolutionary processes that determine human differences; (2) demonstrate a holistic, functionally relevant understanding of the structural plan of the human body from an anatomical, developmental, comparative and evolutionary perspective; (3) describe the basic structure and function of the human body in the context of health; (4) demonstrate an understanding of the relationship between structure, function and development at the organ and cellular level; (5) critically assimilate, analyse and discuss information acquired; and (6) develop and consolidate sound scientific research design methods.
