Demystify the complexities of the human body and contribute to enhancing human health.

Having a holistic understanding of how the human body works is fundamental for detecting disease and developing new or improved treatments.

Study a minor in human anatomy to acquire in-depth knowledge of cell, tissue and organ systems within the human body. You’ll gain practical skills in dissection and examine prosected cadavers to deepen your knowledge of gross human anatomy.

Apply your anatomical data-analysis skills to investigate how systems contribute to human growth and development, as well as how they're linked to diseases and disorders.

Strengthen your knowledge of the complex relationship between the body, mind and disease by combining your Human Anatomy minor with related courses in human physiology, neuroscience or pharmacology.

Knowledge in human anatomy underpins a wide range of careers opportunities in the health sector, including those with a biomedical science focus.

You’ll be equipped with the anatomical knowledge required to apply for further study in the field of medicine or allied health. Alternatively, kickstart your career in research by progressing into a research-based honours program.
