Hi, I’m currently in the very early days of researching different masters degrees to decide which would be more beneficial to me careers wise.

I am interested in evolution as a whole across all species but am most interested in primate evolution and behaviour.

I am looking to hopefully work in museums with natural history collections, and for this I don’t know if it would be more useful to have a masters that was specialised in human evolution and behaviour or to be more general study evolutionary biology and ecology.

As getting jobs in museums is quite competitive I don’t want to close doors on opportunities by choosing a masters that is too specific.

This is a very specialised question. Perhaps contact a few natural history museums and ask? It would be a huge mistake to opt for the wrong type of masters.

I don't have an answer to your question, but I HIGHLY recommend looking seriously into Imperial College. They have strong ties to the Natural History Museum, and several of their masters courses are conducted jointly by Imperial and the museum. It's probably the best option available in this country for somebody with your interests and ambitions.
