The University of Indianapolis offers a unique Master of Science degree in Human Biology that blends traditional study in biological anthropology with a solid base in anatomy and the biological sciences. The curriculum is designed to prepare promising students for doctoral work in anthropology and to lay a foundation for careers in the forensic sciences, medicine, and public health. The program emphasizes small class sizes, personal interaction with faculty, hands-on learning, direct and early involvement in research and fieldwork, and valuable opportunities for student teaching. Admission to the program is limited to three to five highly-qualified students per year.
Those interested in skeletal biology may train directly on the dozens of human remains cases (both recent and ancient) that are handled annually through the Archeology & Forensics Laboratory and the Indiana Prehistory Laboratory.
Other departmental resources include comparative human osteology and faunal collections, fossil casts, microscopes, and a human gross anatomy laboratory. Fieldschools in archeological methods are offered on a regular basis.
