Undergraduate Students

Part I Archaeology & Anthropology

Undergraduate students who wish to study Biological Anthropology at Cambridge are admitted to the Department of Archaeology & Anthropology, which co-ordinates a multi-disciplinary first year, or Part I tripos, taught jointly by the three member Divisions of the Department – Archaeology, Biological Anthropology and Social Anthropology.

Part II Biological Anthropology

Biological Anthropology at Part II level is taken by a wide range of students from within the University – the majority are students who finished Part I Arch & Anth and decide to do the complete Part II course in Biological Anthropology in their 2nd and 3rd years of study; they are joined every year by some students who did Part I Natural Sciences. But also, many medics and vets choose to do a one-year Part II in BioAnth as part of their MVST course, or take individual papers from within the BioAnth tripos as options.

Transferable Skills

Apart from the acquisition of subject-specific knowledge, during your studies you will acquire skills which can be applied beyond the Undergraduate course, whether in further academic studies or in other employment in the future. The Department of Biological Anthropology is committed to helping all students develop these skills.
