Education Programs

Many colleges and universities in the United States offer courses in primatology. While some institutions specialize in this area, few have specific programs which lead to degrees in "primatology." Instead, students often take degrees in related fields, such as anthropology, psychology, zoology, or veterinary medicine. People planning careers in basic or biomedical research frequently study neurobiology, reproductive physiology, or other medical disciplines.
