Biological Anthropology - MSc
The MSc in Biological Anthropology is a perfect foundation for PhD research: it provides theoretical background, discipline specific knowledge and advanced, quantitative research methods.
Taught by one of the UK’s largest group of biological anthropologists with a demonstrated record of world-class research in human and primate behaviour, human evolution and skeletal biology this innovative one-year MSc allows you to focus your studies through one of two routes:
- The Human and Primate Behaviour route combines principles of evolutionary anthropology and the behaviour of human and non-human primates, with aspects of evolutionary social, cognitive, and forensic psychology (formerly MSc in Evolution and Human Behaviour).
- The Human Evolutionary Anatomy route focuses on the skeletal biology, functional morphology and evolution of humans and non-human primates.
Students applying for a postgraduate degree must normally have a British first or second class honours degree in a relevant or appropriate subject, or the equivalent from an internationally recognised institution. However, all applicants are considered on an individual basis and additional qualifications, and professional qualifications and experience will also be taken into account when considering applications.
