Course summary

The Forensic Archaeology and Anthropology MSc at Cranfield Forensic Institute is taught by world-leading experts and involves a hands-on practical teaching style with interesting and thought-provoking lectures from our staff and guest speakers. You will have the opportunity at getting your hands dirty with practical archaeological excavations, looking at the science and exploring simulated mass grave sites and using a plethora of practical and theory based techniques to understand and analyse the world as we find it.

Who is it for?

The course offers students a wide range of different experiences with unique facilities available to no other university in the UK. The course is highly practical and hands-on, aiming to produce forensic scientists with a strong background in archaeology and physical anthropology which will help them with their future careers and eventually give them the skills to become experts in these fields.

We find that our students come from a wide range of backgrounds, usually with an archaeological, biological, medical or forensic science first degree, with many coming from abroad, especially African, European and North American countries.
