Program overview

The Physiology major teaches you how the human body works, from the molecular and cellular levels, to tissues and organs, and explains how these interact together with the environment to produce beneficial results for the organism. You'll also examine diseases and the changes that occur at the molecular and cellular levels and how these impact on whole body function. Through these investigations you'll understand how physiologists contribute to the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic strategies to combat the mechanisms of disease.

    Career opportunities

    A Physiology major can lead to careers in the biomedical industry and in research laboratories. There is growing demand for physiology graduates to investigate the action of genes in the body. Physiology graduates are well prepared for a range of professional careers requiring postgraduate study, such as medicine, pharmacy and clinical audiology. Opportunities exist for employment as scientists in commercial organisations or in sales associated with these types of organisations and in public science education. If you have combined your major with qualifications in the area of sport science or exercise and health, you could also find a career in health promotion and fitness.
