Course summary

The Human Sciences and Evolution MSci is unique to UCL, and builds upon the Human Sciences BSc. This interdisciplinary degree draws on teaching from a range of science and non-science departments, and allows students to extend their specialised knowledge of human evolution.

Your learning

First-year core modules are taught through lectures, small-group tutorials, workshops, practicals and laboratory sessions. Your second-year core modules will also involve group work and debates. Optional modules will be taught in a variety of ways according to the nature of the module and the usual practice of the teaching department concerned.

Assessment

Assessments include essays, web-based examinations, written examinations, practical reports, briefing papers and debating performance. Third and fourth-year dissertations are assessed on the basis of the written reports, but you will also be required to make a short presentation of these in the second term.

Careers

Graduates of the programme will be scientifically literate, numerate and able to communicate across a wide range of disciplines. Human Sciences graduates have entered a variety of careers: journalism, nutrition, science communication, management, accountancy, teaching and the finance industry. A number of graduates pursue further studies, including Master's degrees in various fields and qualifications in law and medicine.
