About Forensic Anthropology at Bournemouth University

Our Forensic Anthropology course is concerned with the application of biological anthropological techniques to the analysis of human skeletal remains within a legal context and provides a vital suite of expertise and skills that can be applied to answer both modern and archaeological questions.

Specialist anthropological skills can contribute, not only to our understanding of the past, but also to the effective investigation of serious incidents in the modern world, particularly murder, genocide and human rights violations within the constraints of the criminal justice system. Such skills have also proved increasingly useful in recent years in the wake of mass disasters, both natural and man-made.

Core Modules:

  • Bodies of Evidence - Skeletal Changes Before & After Death
  • Crime Scene Management & Forensic Science
  • Human Functional Anatomy
  • Principles & Methods in Human Osteology
  • Professional Practice in Forensic Science
  • Research Project

Option Units (Choose 1):

  • Forensic Archaeology
  • Techniques of Archaeological Recovery & Recording
