Human Osteology and Funerary Archaeology MSc

Working in labs, you'll get advanced training in the analysis of human remains. Through dissection, you'll gain a detailed understanding of skeletal and soft tissue anatomy. Lectures in funerary archaeology put the subject in context.

As a member of a vibrant research community, you will also develop core skills in research project development and statistical data analysis. You'll put these skills to work over the summer on an original, independent research project. Graduates from this course have pursued careers in academia, commercial archaeology, heritage management and museums. Many go on to PhDs.
