Master of Archaeological and Evolutionary Science


CRICOS course code: 096399M
Level of study: Postgraduate

This program – not offered at any other Australian University – equips you with the theory and skills required to undertake a scientific study of the past and present of humanity using Archaeology and/or Biological Anthropology perspectives. Students can tailor the program to their own training objectives, through hands-on experience with a variety of world-leading supervising specialists, materials, and fieldwork and laboratory resources. The Archaeological Science stream offers professionally-oriented training and the opportunity to focus on tailored independent research projects. By taking Biological Anthropology courses you will study humans and non-human primates as varied and dynamically changing biological organisms. You will explore primate evolution, ecology, behavior and conservation; human evolution and behavior; paleopathology, bio archaeology, and forensic archaeology/anthropology. Four specializations are available to match your interests: Primate and Human Behavior; Bio archaeology and Forensic Anthropology; Environmental Archaeology and Climate Change; Human Evolution
