This taught Master's places a strong emphasis on critical thinking and understanding of both the broad field of Biological Anthropology and the specialisms within. Core to our Biological Anthropology MSc is the development of research methods, culminating in a piece of original research, written up in the form of a publication-ready journal article.
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:
Both routes emphasize the development of original thinking, training in advanced research methods, and the production of original research. It provides students with transferable skills in data collection, oral and written dissemination of information and professional development opportunities. The MSc in Biological Anthropology provides the theoretical background, discipline-specific knowledge and advanced quantitative research methods necessary to embark on doctoral projects or a wide range of professional careers.
In this talk, Dr Tatyana Humle, Senior lecturer in Primate Conservation, summarises some of the main challenges faced by people and chimpanzees in West Africa and highlights the key drivers putting at risk co-existence between them.
