Do you have a background in Anatomy or Anthropology? This MSc Anatomy and Advanced Forensic Anthropology at the University of Dundee will teach you how to analyze and interpret human remains for the medico-legal purpose of establishing identity. These skills play a critical role all over the world in cases of inter-personal violence and homicide, repatriation, mass disasters, and war crimes.
Students in this program are taught by expert staff, many of whom are experienced forensic practitioners. These instructors will teach you how to interpret juvenile skeletal remains, produce and present forensic skeletal reports, and understand how these tools are used in the legal process.
Thiel embalmed cadavers are used as part of the learning process to help students gain a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of gross anatomy through full body dissection. These cadavers maintain real-to-life qualities, including realistic colour, tissue quality, and flexibility.
Learning is also enhanced through student access to our skeletal collections helping to demonstrate how each bone in the body forms and develops, and how this knowledge can be applied to the identification process. Watch below to find out more about this program:
