About

This Biological Anthropology - Human Skeletal Biology program from New York University prepares graduates to apply the principles and techniques of Physical Anthropology to a variety of contexts, including those in the Forensic Sciences (i.e., Medical Examiner’s office, Coroner’s office, Armed Forces, Criminal Justice, Law Enforcement, Mass Disasters). 

Overview

The Biological Anthropology - Human Skeletal Biology program from New York University can also be useful training for students who are preparing for admission to doctoral programs in skeletal biology, molecular anthropology, and human evolution.

An integral part of the program is hands-on, semester long professional internships developed according to student interest. These opportunities range from those in genetics (in departmental labs and the ME’s office), osteology and odontology (in departmental labs, NYU School of Dentistry, the AMNH, and ME’s office), and field recovery training (departmental or other field schools). Ideally, student research projects will evolve from these internships into M.A. theses. Yearly skeletal biology colloquia bring visiting scientists for talks and workshops.

The program is expected to take two years to complete, but can be somewhat longer for those working full-time.
