Study your MA Archaeology with a focus on bioarchaeology as you prepare for a career in research, the commercial sector or heritage management. You will need to apply to the MA Archaeology programme, and upon enrolment you will have the option to select the recommended modules to build your own pathway to specialise in bioarchaeology.
Join a world-leading Department of Archaeology with an international reputation for excellence in teaching and research as you take thematic and skills-based options that integrate social and scientific techniques for a deeper understanding of the past.
With a focus on bioarchaeology, you can study issues such as gender and the life course, childhood, migration, diet and health.
You will have access to state-of-the-art facilities including fully-equipped and dedicated laboratories for human skeletal remains and animal bone analysis, stable isotope analysis, microscopic suite (CAF) and an MA study room. Our analytical suite is extensive, allowing students to access a range of techniques for their research projects.
You will gain an effective grounding in archaeological practice and research while simultaneously concentrating your studies on bioarchaeology research areas through your dissertation, a core period module and a themed "Issues and debates" module.
