Masters Degrees in Evolution

We have 47 Masters Degrees in Evolution

Masters degrees in Evolution offer postgraduate training in the study of organisms’ developmental adaptations to their environment through mechanisms of heredity and biological change. Specialisations include: Human Evolution including Behaviour, Language and Cognition; Animal Evolution including Ecology; Evolutionary Biology and Ethnobiology. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant science subject. Postgraduates with experience in other fields may also be equipped to study theoretical and philosophical aspects of Evolutionary theory and its impacts.

Why study a Masters in Evolution?

## Courses in Evolution and Evolutionary Biology trace the developmental changes within organisms through a multitude of techniques. More science-based programmes explore analysis of genetics and molecular responses through methods such as computational biology. Interpreting and generating data through activities such as lab testing - including manipulating tissue culture and bioimaging - are a key component of most programmes. Archaeological techniques in palaeobiology and palaeobotany are also explored, such as taking skeletal measurements or carrying out excavations. Careers may range from positions in NGOs (community development, nature conservation), government organisations (national statistics, health programmes), in zoos and museums (overseeing collections, co-ordination research), or careers in academia. If the latter is of most interest to you, a Masters in Evolution is excellent preparation for a PhD.
