MSc in Palaeoanthropology and Palaeolithic Archaeology
Co-ordinator: Andrew Garrard
The UCL Institute of Archaeology and Department of Anthropology have considerable staff expertise in the fields of palaeoanthropology and palaeolithic archaeology. Staff and research students are currently involved in field projects as well as museum-based studies in Britain, various parts of Europe, the Middle East, China and eastern and southern Africa. This degree brings together the expertise of the two departments to provide graduate students with an integrated training in the biological and archaeological aspects of human evolutionary studies. The courses provide an excellent foundation for students wishing to undertake doctoral research in these fields, but also appeal to graduates with strong interests in the origins and emergence of human societies. The university is situated in central London, with easy access to the British Museum and Natural History Museum and their outstanding palaeontological and archaeological collections.
