Course summary

Our joint honours course allows students to pursue their own areas of interest within Anthropology and History of Art whilst also providing them with a solid foundation in both disciplines and a range of personal and professional skills which will serve as a springboard for their future career development. The programme is carefully designed to enable students to gradually develop their knowledge and skills and become autonomous, effective and independent learners. When you study Anthropology, you’ll explore what makes us human, what drives our diversity and how we’re connected to our environment. The History of Art course at Brookes places a particular stress on the study of works of art and buildings at first-hand, with almost all modules including guided visits to sites in Oxford or London. Links between research and undergraduate teaching are an important and distinctive feature of the programme, and the combined research experience and competencies of staff have shaped its design, content and delivery.


In the Anthropology element of the course, what you study includes: Biological anthropology examines humans within a broad evolutionary framework, including variation in biological characteristics, genes, diseases, the interaction between people and their environment, and the behaviours and comparative anatomy of primates and early hominins. Social anthropology includes the cross-cultural study of social organisation, kinship and gender, political structure, religion and ritual, values and beliefs and social change. In the History of Art element of the course, what you study includes: Year 1 has six modules covering skills, issues and debates in the history of art and architecture from the Renaissance through to the Modern period. Years 2 and 3 give your studies a period focus by offering options from the 15th to 20th centuries such as Oxford Buildings or Anthropology of Art. Year 3’s dissertation module will allow you to work in depth on a topic of particular interest to you.
