Bioarchaeology is concerned with the investigation of human and animal skeletal remains to understand the lives of individuals and communities in the past, in relation to their social, cultural, economic, palaeoenvironmental and evolutionary contexts. The subject sits firmly at the interface of the science and humanities within archaeology and anthropology, and it has strong links with a range of academic disciplines, including archaeology, archaeological science, physical and social anthropology. We offer two specialist pathways within the overall context of bioarchaeology: MSc Bioarchaeology (Anthropology) MSc Bioarchaeology (Osteoarchaeology) The osteoarchaeology pathway aims to enhance career opportunities for graduates from a variety of fields and for practising archaeologists seeking to expand their expertise. The sub-disciplines of human and animal osteoarchaeology have much in common at a core level. By covering both human and animal remains, this course affords a breadth of knowledge, leaving you well placed to specialise further through the research project. The pathway provides an excellent foundation if you wish to pursue a career as a specialist osteoarchaeological practitioner, researcher or as an academic within the archaeological profession. Similarly the anthropology pathway provides opportunities in the direction of the deeper human past and is ideal if you intent to pursue doctoral level study of human evolution.
