Overview

Bachelor of Science in Physiology

If you have a mind for science and you’re keen to keep your options open, then the BSc is the degree for you. With many undergraduate majors in a wide range of subject areas, the BSc will allow you to incorporate different areas of interest and expertise. 

As well as strongly emphasising transferable skills to improve your employment opportunities, this programme will expose you to cutting-edge technologies and provide a gateway to independent research. 

Throughout your undergraduate degree you’ll be taught by knowledgeable scientists, many of whom are major contributors in their field.

What can you study in Physiology?

You can study Physiology as a major in the Bachelor of Science (BSc).

Physiology is the study of how living organisms function, from the cellular to the whole-body level. If we understand how organisms work we can understand what goes wrong in disease, and develop a scientific basis for its treatment. 

Physiology is highly quantitative and has close links with biochemistry, molecular biology, mathematical modelling, pharmacology, zoology and neuroscience.

As a Physiology student, you’ll take courses in Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Medical Science and Physics to give you a solid quantitative grounding and to encourage critical thinking, science innovation and translation. 

As part of your Physiology major you’ll complete a capstone course, PHYSIOL 399, where you’ll demonstrate your knowledge and skills through the design of a scientific research project. You’ll explore ethics, the role of science and scientists in society, science communication, and commitment to Māori and Pacific health advancement.
