Why study Anatomy & Advanced Forensic Anthropology at Dundee?

Forensic anthropology is the analysis of human remains for the medico-legal purpose of establishing identity. The discipline has adopted a pivotal role in UK and International investigations in cases of inter-personal violence and homicide, repatriation, mass disasters and war crimes.

Recent mass fatality incidents have highlighted the requirement for national and international disaster victim identification (DVI) capability, and cemented the forensic anthropologist’s role as a significant component within the multi-disciplinary response facility.

Traditionally the forensic anthropologist has dealt with human skeletal remains resulting from unexplained deaths; this professional definition is unrealistically restrictive given the multi-disciplinary nature of the demands of human identification in the twenty-first century. In particular there is a significant requirement for anatomically-trained forensic anthropologists who are competent in dealing with both soft and hard tissues in order to fulfil the requirements of DVI deployment.

Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification

This course is taught within the Centre for Anatomy and Human Identfication (CAHID) and is located in the Medical Sciences Institute at the University of Dundee, Scotland.

Prof Sue Black heads the Centre, she was awarded an OBE for her International Human Identification work from mass graves and co-authored Developmental Juvenile Osteology and The Juvenile Skeleton.

The award-winning staff of this Centre are amongst the most experienced in the UK in the fields of human identification, forensic anthropology, craniofacial identification and the study of the human body.

The core remit of the Centre is the study of anatomy. The Centre delivers high quality anatomy teaching at all levels, via whole body dissection which allows students to develop a sound knowledge of the human body. The Centre relies on the generosity of donors for the ability to teach students to the highest standard possible.

The Centre was awarded a prestigious Queen's Anniversary Prize for Higher Education in November 2013. Presented in recognition of 'world class excellence', the Queen’s Anniversary Prizes are among the

Aims of the Programme

The aim of this programme is to provide training in anatomically-based forensic anthropology, and specifically to provide advanced training in musculoskeletal anatomy, juvenile osteology, comparative forensic osteology and DVI training.

[[Teaching & Assessment}}

- How you will be taught

Modules are taught using a variety of teaching methods such as lectures, workshops, group-work and student presentations. A variety of teaching and learning methods are used to address subject-specific knowledge and skills, with the balance between methods in each module determined by the learning outcomes of the module. Lectures provide the main vehicle to communicate information and exemplify the use of abstract subject specific skills. One-to-one and small group supervision is used for direction of students whilst undertaking the report. Additionally, specialised lectures are given by the organiser of the report module on how to prepare and execute a satisfactory report.

Students are introduced to IT and Library facilities in lectures, workshops and tutorials. Module material is made available through the VLE and refers to websites of particular interest. Instruction on specific learning skills is given in lectures, and workshops as relevant. Guidance on learning related skills is provided at a suitable level in all modules and students are expected to use IT facilities for their coursework as appropriate.

Independent learning is a feature of all modules and is an increasingly important element of ‘good’ MSc programmes. Directed reading is an integral part of all modules with credit given for evidence of wide reading in assessments.

The communication, practice and, where appropriate, assessment of specific transferable skills are embedded in most modules. All modules provide opportunities for students to acquire and practise applicable skills (e.g. problem solving, case study analysis, group working).

How you will be assessed

All modules are assessed through a combination of coursework and final assessment held at the end of each Semester with re-sit opportunity shortly thereafter. Coursework may account for as much as 40-50% of the overall degree. Coursework is an integral part of the assessment process. By forming part of the total mark it encourages students to excel throughout the degree.
