This programme explores human thought, behaviour, and culture from the perspectives of the evolutionary and cognitive sciences.
Prospective DPhil students are normally admitted as Probationer Research Students and are expected to take relevant courses offered as part of our MSc in Cognitive & Evolutionary Anthropology (which must include the statistics course). Upgrade to full D.Phil. status at the end of the first year requires the submission of a project proposal and a satisfactory oral assessment based on this. In some cases, the supervisor may require the student to complete a further programme of methodological training or other preparatory work considered necessary for the proposed programme of research.
