The purpose of the Diploma in Forensic Anthropology & Human Identification programme is to equip learners with a basic understanding of the fields of forensic anthropology (the scientific study of recent human remains) and human identification from a historical, theoretical and practical perspective.  In addition, the application of anthropological and diagnostic imaging methods in the analysis of the living and the dead will be considered.  At the end of the course, learners will have a detailed understanding of the different aspects of forensic anthropological work and associated specialities and their contribution to the identification process.

At the outset, students will gain knowledge regarding the basic human osteology (study of bones) and anatomical terminology used to describe the human body in the medical and scientific fields.  During the course, students will be introduced to the main scientific instruments and methods used by most forensic anthropologists world-wide and will understand the strengths and limitations of these methods.  By its conclusion, attendees will have a significant understanding of what forensic anthropology can offer the investigative authorities and how the field is developing in future.
