This course studies the evolution of life on this planet through the study of geology and biology. The degrees are interdisciplinary and numerate and provide students with a broad background in palaeobiological science, including state-of-the-art methods and technological advances. Students will learn from a large and vibrant group of experts in the field of palaeobiology, with interests ranging from dinosaurs to plants to the origin of life and will be immersed in hands-on palaeontology from the start. One third of the first year is dedicated to biology and two thirds to earth science. After the first year, students will take core units from both disciplines, along with a wide choice of optional units. The course involves fieldwork, including dedicated palaeontology field trips. The quantitative research focuses on developing students’ valuable mathematical and statistical skills.
