Minor

Human Anatomy

Diploma in Science

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 are linked to diseases and disorders.

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

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

Studying courses in human anatomy can also help you prepare for sitting the GAMSAT (Graduate Medical Schools Admission Test).
