Through this module the student will gain greater understanding of aspects of Cell Biology focusing on post-translational events and how cellular events lead to normal tissue function or disease development. Lectures, small groups and practical work will be used to develop a greater understanding of how the mechanisms within individual cells and between cells impact on tissues and therefore the organism. The module will employ a case study approach looking at the impact of mechanistic dysfunction on various conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

Students will develop knowledge and understanding of the molecular and cell biology underlying a specific immune response, and how to describe how such responses can protect against infection by learning topics such as antibodies, T cell receptors and MHC molecules; genetics of antigen recognition systems; lymphocyte development; lymphocyte activation; regulation of immune responses; antibody Technology; immunity against infection/immunization; and more.

This module introduces students to anthropology which is the study of human diversity and sameness. The module explores the amazingly varied ways that people across the world live, think and relate to one another, as well as the question of what is shared in the experience of being human.

This course examines the major currents in architectural and urban thinking, and the social, political, economic, environmental, technological and ideological factors that have shaped, and continue to shape, the production and design of buildings and cities since the emergence of modernity. Organised in to three thematics; cities, cultures and space, the course introduces students to key concepts and theories for thinking about architecture, space and the built environment and to the importance of disciplinary perspectives from beyond architecture such as planning, urban design, social sciences, anthropology, philosophy, cultural studies, history and the humanities.

This module provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary to discuss ‘race’ and racism in an informed, sensitive and critical fashion, making links between ‘race’ and other cultural identities based on class, gender and sexuality. Drawing on theoretical perspectives developed within media and cultural studies, heritage, sociology, history, linguistics and anthropology, students will explore current debates around ‘race’, identity and popular culture through the prism of cultural theory. They will learn about what ‘race’ is and where it comes from, and how racism can be seen as multiple, fluent and historically contingent. Students will develop the skills to think and write about contemporary ‘race’ issues with diligence and precision, and will gain a critical understanding of the role played by media and popular culture in reproducing (and resisting) racist discourse.

The module provides an introduction to the practice of managing people in organisations. It examines management as a social process, and offers a critical understanding of how management is performed, why and with what effect. Alongside the practical and theoretical, the module explores the art of management considering the aesthetic, emotional and psychological aspects of work.

This module explores slavery in the ancient, modern and early modern and modern periods. It is global in scope, introducing students to the experience and practise of slavery in Europe, Africa and the Americas. It will provide insight into the ideologies, practises and social structures that helped constitute the many different forms of slavery in these multiple eras and regions, and explore as far as is possible the lived experiences of slaves themselves.

Memories are living history and over the past seventy years, oral history has transformed the practice of contemporary history in many countries. This module will provide an overview of the historical development of oral history as a research method for historians, develop students’ awareness of memory as a historical source and explore the changing uses of both since the 1950s. Through the use of a theme each year, students will examine the possibilities of using oral history as a way of understanding the past; develop an awareness of the ethical and practical issues involved and develop skills required to research, design, manage and undertake oral history interviews either in person or remotely.

This course aims for students to understand the main theoretical approaches to the study of regional and international organizations (e.g. UN, EU, ASEAN, WHO, WTO, OAS, AU, IAEA), examine the governing structures and processes of regional and international organisations and the politics inherent in their make-up, analyse the effectiveness, limits and challenges of regional and international organizations and the ways in which they respond to these.

This course aims for students to investigate the nature of language, come to an understanding of the various areas within the field of linguistics, learn how the study of linguistics relates to other sciences, particularly neuroscience, evolutionary biology, and computation.

This module provides an introduction to selected texts and literary movements in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Students are introduced to a range of issues and approaches which will be developed at stages 2 and 3: the varieties of writing in English, the cultural and political contexts in which texts are produced and read, and a range of critical practices. Students are invited to explore the relationship between texts and contexts, and how texts might be read in relation to particular generic expectations.

This module provides an introduction to the fundamental properties and behaviour of engineering materials. Fundamental aspects of common ferrous and non-ferrous engineering materials, relevant to selection, design and manufacture are discussed. The influence of structure-scales and processing methods on materials properties are discussed. The course aims are to enable students to understand essential facts, concepts, theories and principles of engineering material science necessary for engineering design; introduce students to the fundamental properties and behaviour of engineering materials; and introduce students to laboratory testing of materials including good laboratory practice and scientific method.

An introduction to ecological interactions between organisms and environment, and to ecological concepts applied at the level of individuals, populations, communities and ecosystems. Introduction to conservation principles, policy and practice.

The overall purpose of the module is to develop students’ understanding of the complex challenges faced by organisations / companies in the arena of sustainability and the linkages between these specific challenges and the wider UN Sustainable Development Goals. The module provides students with the opportunity to work with an external organisation on a problem and generate a sustainable solution. The students will work in small teams with colleagues from other degree programmes and bring principles and practice from their own disciplines to application within the solution. At the end of an intense week of development the team will pitch their idea to the challenge sponsor having considered social, economic and environmental aspects of their proposal. The module allows students to participate in a problem based, experiential learning challenge, as part of the ‘Engaged Newcastle’ scheme and to consider future career development opportunities.

This course aims to introduce the programming language Python and its application to mathematical problems; promote familiarity with the environment for standard mathematical operations, and to work towards the ideas of coding user-defined functions and scripts, and further towards programming aimed at solving more substantial problems; and promote independent thinking and critical appraisal by linking the computational experience to the tackling of unfamiliar problems that have not been directly demonstrated to them and which can be formulated mathematically.

Since the beginning of human enquiry we have wondered what our place in the Universe is and if we’re alone. In order to answer these questions the branch of Astrophysics involves observing astronomical bodies and applying physical laws in order to understand them. This requires cutting edge observations across the electromagnetic spectrum as well as application of physics ranging from particle physics to general relativity. This module will introduce a basic understanding of how we observe astrophysical bodies and how we apply physical laws to those bodies in order to ultimately understand the Universe.

To provide an understanding of the importance of marine ecosystems in relation to their distribution and productivity, and introduce students to different organismal processes such as feeding strategies, reproductive strategies and adaptations to biotic and abiotic factors. To relate knowledge of organisms in different ecosystems to each other and compare organisms in different environments. To appreciate the specific uniqueness of the plankton to marine systems and their role in life-history processes, marine food-webs and their responses to environmental change.

This module provides students with a comprehensive introduction to marketing, current issues, its key principles, core concepts and strategic tools. The range of concepts that students will be introduced to include Marketing Communications, consumer behaviour, market research, the 7Ps of marketing, marketing strategy and marketing environments.
