Biological anthropology is the study of the biology and evolution of humans and our closest relatives and implication of this evolution for modern humans and primates. Biological anthropology at Purdue examines the place of humans in natural ecosystems from the broad perspectives of primatology, human biology and bioarchaeology.

We encourage applications for our M.S. Ph.D. program.

Our program includes theoretical and methodological training, coursework and tutorials in quantitative methods, evolutionary theory, history and foundations of biological anthropological thinking, human biology, health and nutrition, primate ecology and conservation, and osteology.

The PhD is offered for Human Evolutionary Biology and is administered through the School of Biomedical Sciences.Applications are due by Jan. 1 for domestic applicants (and Dec. 15 for International applicants).

Admission to the program requires a master degree, usually acquired at Kent State. Course requirements are specified by the Division of Biomedical Sciences and the Human Evolutionary Biology Program. Research specialty is the student choice as are all mentoring relationships.

We believe that only such an innovative, inter-disciplinary approach can ultimately lead to a highly detailed account of our own origins. We therefore encourage each Ph.D. student to acquire a broad background and understanding of those disciplines that, when weaved together, holistically account for human evolution. These include neurobiology, primate behavior, biodemography and evolutionary theory, developmental biology, human gross structure, and genetics. We offer classes and mentoring in these areas as well as encouraging students to take advantage of classes in other departments at KSU (biology, psychology, earth sciences, chemistry, geography).
