Interdisciplinary approach combining both evolutionary anthropology with evolutionary, social and cognitive psychology.
Taught by expert researchers, this unique and innovative MSc combines evolutionary anthropology, focusing on the behaviour of human and non-human primates, with evolutionary, social, and cognitive psychology. You gain an interdisciplinary understanding of the origins and functions of human behaviour and can select from a range of advanced topics such as Evolutionary Anthropology, Primatology, Human Behaviour, Cognitive Psychology, and Intergroup Relationships. The programme places a strong emphasis on critical thinking and understanding of both the broad field and the specialisms within. Core to the programme is the development of research methods, culminating in a piece of original research, written up in the form of a publication ready journal article.
The MSc in Evolution and Human Behaviour is a perfect foundation for PhD research: it provides theoretical background, discipline specific knowledge and advanced research methods.
