University of Sheffield - MSc Osteoarchaeology
The Department of Archaeology at the University of Sheffield (UK) is pleased to announce the launch of its new Masters (MSc) in Osteoarchaeology, to start in the academic year 2012-13.
Closing date for application - 25th May
This programme combines the study of human and animal bones from archaeological sites.
It gives the students the opportunity to focus on either, or both, research specialisms. The teaching is centred on the explanation of methods and theoretical approaches that can be used to address many different types of archaeological questions, regardless of the period or geographical area.
The teaching will consist of both lab-based practical sessions and theoretical lectures. Students will benefit from exposure to leading research teams in both human and animal bones and will have the opportunity to engage in discussions with postgraduate and postdoctoral students and staff, both inside and outside the classroom. Students will play an active part in the shaping of their own programme of study and they will also have the opportunity to develop their own original research. Due to the prominence of the Sheffield research environment and its track-record in teaching and training, graduates from this programme will be in a prime position to continue their education or seek employment with research, educational or commercial organisations.
