General information
The master's degree Biological Anthropology is intended to provide holders of degrees in experimental sciences and the humanities with up-to-date training in human biodiversity, its origin, evolution and the biomedical implications. The program responds to the growing demand for specialists in the area of human biology and physical anthropology, contributing knowledge and methodologies pertaining to this area of specialization and related areas (e.g., physiology, genetics, zoology, medicine, archaeology).

The program focuses primarily on research and offers students the opportunity both to collaborate with businesses working in this field and to complete their final project in collaboration with outside institutions. Students are offered two specializations: Physical and Forensic Anthropology, and Molecular Anthropology and Biomedical Applications.

These studies are aimed at people who are interested in the following areas:

  • Forensic anthropology and the osteological and molecular techniques used in individual identification.
  • Anthropology applied to archaeology, including taphonomy, demographics and the reconstruction of ancient populations.
  • Human evolution, primatology and prehistory.
  • Molecular anthropology.
  • Biomedical applications of human molecular diversity in cytogenetics, complex diseases and genetic epidemiology.

This master’s degree addresses all of these areas in an in-depth and interrelated manner. More than 50% of the content will be applied work in osteology, molecular biology and computer laboratories.
