This unique multidisciplinary programme is the only one of its kind available in the UK and offers an opportunity to study an in-depth programme that explores what it is to be human. This is based on the study of three major areas of evolutionary anthropology: the archaeology of human evolution, palaeoanthropology, and primatology. You can choose to study all three elements or focus on two areas and add modules in Biology, Psychology, and Earth Sciences. You will be required to complete four weeks of fieldwork including two weeks on our department field school at the end of Year One. In Year Two, many students work on overseas staff research excavations, currently these are based in Sicily, Bulgaria, Greece, Turkey, Jordan, Egypt, Southern Africa and Ireland as well as the UK. This programme is available with a Year in China. The Year in China allows undergraduate students the opportunity to spend one year at our joint venture, Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU), following XJTLU's BA China Studies degree classes. XJTLU is a fully English-speaking university, located in Suzhou. If you wish to study this programme with a Year in China please put the option code YC in the Further Choices section of your UCAS application form.
