Our BA Anthropology course offers a unique opportunity to explore the social, material, linguistic and biological aspects of human experience. Our programme provides the key skills and knowledge required to apply anthropological theory and research techniques to address the major contemporary challenges facing humanity, for example, the impacts of climate change, technological innovation, and deepening health inequalities. You will receive training in both qualitative and quantitative anthropological methodologies and in descriptive, analytic, interpretative and visual techniques. This will prepare you to undertake fieldwork in communities in Bristol and further afield. Original research inspires all our teaching and your degree culminates with you producing a substantial final-year dissertation on a topic of your choice. Whether you are interested in the study of humankind present or past, from Amazonia to Avon, you will be able to explore the topics that inspire you and fire your imagination.
