It has been argued that a sense of the past, and of our origins, lies at the root of what it is to be human – and it is a desire to uncover that past and reveal those origins, that underpins the modern discipline of archaeology. As such, archaeology and related disciplines both trace the becoming of humanity and form some part of what it means to be human. It should come as no surprise therefore, that there has been intense academic and public interest in hominid origins and human evolution, nor that advances in our understanding are continually driven forward by new archaeological and palaeontological discoveries. In addition, evolutionary perspectives are increasingly recognised as providing important insights into human cognition, behaviour and lifeways. Our MSc in Palaeoanthropology draws on these developments, and provides you with a unique combination of Palaeolithic archaeology, biological anthropology, human and comparative anatomy, primatology and hominid palaeontology. The programme is designed to appeal to those who want to create a strong platform for doctoral research in hominid origins and/or human evolution, as well as those who just want to deepen their understanding of our earliest ancestors.
