University of Roehampton

Course Introduction

Roehampton's expert staff team have well'established links with a number of leading institutions and field sites, such as the German Primate Centre, Zoological Society of London (ZSL), Gashaka Primate Project Nigeria, Trentham Monkey Forest, and Berenty Reserve Madagascar. This course combines theoretical investigation with fieldwork and laboratory work on a range of topics in primatology. You will learn about the biology, behaviour and conservation of primates, and about the theory and practice of primatological research. After the first semester, the emphasis will be on independent study, with all students undertaking a substantial piece of original research.
