This interdisciplinary MSc programme is for students who are passionate about early life, mass extinctions, macroevolution, climate change and fossil preservation. It bridges the biology-geology divide. You will learn the latest techniques in phylogenetics, biomechanics and macroevolution, providing you with a strong foundation for independent research to PhD level or for a career in museum curation, science education, science policy, management or the media.
You will join Bristol's established palaeobiology research group and engage in current debates in evolution, systematics and palaeobiology. You will learn how to analyse problems quantitatively and design experimental approaches to resolving questions in macroevolution and the study of ancient organisms.
A key aspect
An upper second-class honours degree (or international equivalent) in geology, biological sciences, environmental sciences, archaeology, anthropology or a related discipline.
I would describe my experience in the Department of Earth Sciences as an academic challenge in a warm and friendly environment.
