Why study MSc Forensic Anthropology and Archaeology ?
- Investigate human remains in modern contexts relating to crime, conflict, human rights violations, and disasters, whilst exploring traditional principles, techniques and methods of analysis
- Develop an understanding of legal issues and constraints, management and process of the investigative system and the professional skills enabling evidence to be presented to court
- Focus on interpretation of injury and post-mortem events with emphasis given to the archaeological recovery of human remains rather than taking a view that analysis begins when remains reach the laboratory
- Benefit from the expert knowledge of our academics, many of whom are actively engaged in national or international research
- Growing demand for skilled practitioners in international investigations of disasters, human rights violations and genocide contributing towards the recovery and identification of unknown victims and the determination of the cause of their deaths
- Learn transferable skills including report writing, communication and presentation skills, expert witness training and contemporaneous recording, to prepare you for a wide range of career opportunities.
Forensic archaeology is an expanding international field. Upon completion of the course you will join other BU graduates who are acknowledged as some of the most experienced forensic archaeologists in the field.
This will open up a wide range of career prospects for you, and you could end up work anywhere in the world examining crime scenes, mass graves & disasters and educating other researchers in new forensic science approaches.
