Anthropology explores the fundamentals of what it means to be human. It takes the whole world as its point of interest and brings one face to face with the eye-opening variety of human behaviours both in the present and from the past. Anthropology students at UWTSD have the opportunity to observe and engage with communities and cultures first-hand. For instance, students are able to undertake Voluntary Work Abroad and be active participants in staff’s research projects, both in the UK and abroad. The programme is also based on the exploration of education from the perspectives of history, philosophy, psychology and sociology, thereby offering you critical insights into key issues of how learning is organised and the factors that influence it. We also examine wider educational issues such as equality, diversity and inclusion as well as creative learning, alternatives to mainstream education and community engagement. There is a strong sense of community among students and staff, and the ratio of staff to students is such that students can access their lecturers when needed. The small classes are always friendly and never intimidating, allowing staff to know their students on a first-name basis.
The programme is assessed in a variety of ways and will include several of the following type of assessment: essays of 1000 to 4000 words in length, document analyses, book reviews, short reports and reflective journals, timed tests, take home exams, field journals, posters, group and individual presentations, dissertations of 10,000 words, wikis, commentaries and film evaluations.
The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data. For further information, see the Discover Uni website.
