UK Anthropology Courses

Introduction to Anthropology

Anthropology is the study of human societies and social sciences, asking questions of the differences between groups of people around the world, and what that can teach us of our own lives. An Anthropology degree will develop your ability and understanding of a variety of cultural contexts, other people’s way of life and how society is structured.

The knowledge and skills you will graduate with will help you analyse social life and organisations, enabling you to think outside of the box.

Anthropology modules include money and markets, politics and power, religion, reproduction, health, environmental impact, race and cross-cultural performance. An interest in geography, cultural studies, international relations and languages will help prepare a student for an Anthropology degree.
