Ranking and student feedback
(Archaeology and anthropology)
University of Exeter evaluation:
Archaeology and anthropology evaluation:
Bioarchaeology is an exciting and fast-advancing field which combines archaeology with branches of the natural sciences to study key topics such as past health and well-being, diet, ecology, subsistence strategies and environmental impacts. Our MSc in Bioarchaeology aims to develop a broad understanding of these issues through the study of human remains. Students on this programme will also have the opportunity to study animal remains, as well as floral and faunal evidence depending which pathway they choose to follow. The three available Bioarchaeology pathways are: MSc Bioarchaeology: Human Osteology MSc Bioarchaeology: Zooarchaeology MSc Bioarchaeology: Forensic Anthropology The programme develops advanced practical skills in skeletal analysis, making use of the department’s well-provisioned specialist laboratories and reference collections. A particular strength of our provision is that we are able to address the bioarchaeology of both the New and Old Worlds. Those completing the programme acquire the skills necessary to continue into academic research or employment, as an osteologist in field units, museums or CRM companies. It allows you to specialise in one of three named pathways: Human Osteology (physical anthropology and funerary archaeology), Zooarchaeology (animal bones and other faunal remains), or Forensic Anthropology (the recovery, identification and analysis of human remains to assist with problems and questions of legal significance).
