Masters degrees in Physical & Biological Anthropology explore past and present human evolution, in biological and behavioural contexts. They analyse the human condition in relation to physiology, environment, variability, survival, and reproduction, and how these factors adapt over time.
Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Archaeology or Human Biology.
These programmes offer various specialisations, including anthropological linguistics, primate behaviour and ecology, human morphology, human nutritional ecology, growth and development, and more. You can develop your skills in imaging, DNA sequencing, reconstruction and data modelling, lab testing, and biological analyses.
Careers for Anthropological science postgraduates are also extremely diverse. They may range from assisting in research projects such as archaeological excavations or conservation programmes, to positions in government or private agencies, health or charitable organisations. You may even manage business in the heritage sector and tourism industries.
A Masters in this area is also excellent preparation for PhD study. You may wish to conduct further research into current global issues such as climate change and consumerism, or delve into palaeontological projects.
