Summary

Palaeoanthropology traces the evolution of humanity. It reflects our desire to understand where we come from, which is part of what it means to be human. This is a subject that attracts intense interest from the public and from academics of all disciplines. It’s increasingly recognised as providing important insights into human behaviour and cognition.

Our MSc draws on the latest thinking, combining biological anthropology, human and comparative anatomy, primatology and hominid palaeontology to give you an advanced understanding of the subject and its possibilities.

Closely integrated modules develop your understanding of the palaeoanthropological record. You will also get training in the analytical techniques required to describe and interpret skeletal and fossil evidence – this includes an introduction to 2D and 3D imaging.
