MSc in Human Evolution

 

This new and innovative MSc in Human Evolution has been designed to provide students with a detailed understanding of human and primate evolution, focusing on anatomy and morphology and their interfaces with ecology and behaviour.

 

Uniquely this course also provides practical experience and theoretical knowledge about cutting-edge tools for morphometrics, imaging and functional simulation used to study living and fossil species. In addition, students can gain practical knowledge of anatomy through hands-on dissection of human cadaveric material as well as comparative anatomical study. All students undertake a research project of their choice in consultation with a supervisor to investigate a current question in human evolution.

 

The MSc is based in the Centre for Anatomical and Human Sciences (CAHS) at HYMS on the University of York campus and, through membership of the interdisciplinary PALAEO Centre at the University of York, provides an attractive option for those wishing to combine anatomical and archaeological approaches to the study of palaeoanthropology.
