    Biology is a must.

    You should also take specialized courses on evolution and adaptive fitness analysis, and since these may well involve statistics and maths, don't skimp on those topics, either!

    It will certainly be advantageous to take some courses on anthropology, but beware of the unempirical biases within the social "sciences".

    I'm sorry.

    But you could PM our erstwhile moderator and still member Moonbear.

    She is a professional biologist, and may possibly give you some relevant information.
