If you have always been drawn to dinosaurs, the origin of our pre-human ancestors, and the large diversity in trilobites populating the seas of the Palaeozoic Era, this master’s degree will equip you with the professional skills needed to enter the world of palaeontology.
These studies are offered by a variety of lecturers, all of whom are top-level experts in different fields of palaeontology, both in research and in relation to other technical development areas.
The objective is for you to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to analyse and understand the fossils of different organisms, applying the most adequate and innovative techniques in each case.
At the same time, the diversity in activities and the reduced number of students (maximum 25) allows for a personalised monitoring of each student to help you improve your skills and acquire competent professional profiles in each area.
Most lectures are taught in Spanish and a large amount of theoretical content can be followed online, which marks the diference with other similar master’s degree in Spain. The programme is also designed to boost our students’ International projection as soon as they graduate.
The courses and structure of the masters program thoroughly taught me about paleobiology and readily prepared me for my continuation to a higher degreeSharrah McKenzie
