Biological Anthropology at Cambridge offers four different options to study at Postgraduate level, covering all major fields within the discipline:

The unifying theme across our teaching is the understanding of humans, past and present, from an evolutionary perspective. To achieve this, BioAnth at Cambridge looks at humans in the context of other animals, in particular the primates, the behaviour and biology of humans throughout their evolutionary history, as well as the study of human populations today in terms of their genetic diversity, evolutionary ecology, growth, development and health. These topics are explored through a wide range of scientific tools, from genetics, to morphology, archaeology, physiology, ethology, and statistics.
