Cambridge – Biological Anthropology

University of Cambridge Biological Anthropology

Biological anthropology is an exciting subject comparing societies and cultures, looking at change over time and exploring human diversity through the lens of the biological sciences. At Cambridge, biological anthropology is taught as part of the undergraduate degree in archaeology and your studies will include topics ranging from human evolution, comparative human biology, primatology, genetics, health, diet and disease. Many of our biological anthropology graduates go on to further studies and careers in forensics, conservation, heritage, research, teaching and law amongst many others.
