Cheryl Denley, from Vancouver, Canada, started a taught MSc in Osteoarchaeology in September 2010.
My choice to study osteoarchaeology at the University of Edinburgh was based on this programme offering a chance to balance a masters degree between human and animal remains which, ultimately, will afford more opportunities within a limited job market. Additionally, the vast experiences of the professors and lecturers as well as the prestige of the University of Edinburgh will contribute to my future employment and career.
One of the best things about this program is the international appeal and the chance to study and learn with people that have similar interests, and different ideas, within a field that is globally connected.
Since coming to the University of Edinburgh I have been offered the chance to work within the cultural resource management field of archaeology as a consultant and to further my education with a PhD. I am currently seeking a means to do both simultaneously.
