Anthropology with Foundation Year

Make sure you check on the university, college or conservatoire website for any updates about course changes as a result of COVID-19.

Course summary

Anthropology explores what it means to be human by looking at how people create rules and norms, and how they use beliefs and expectations to organise social life. An important part of undertaking Anthropology will be to go into the world to find out what people are doing. We encourage our students to practise, not just learn about, Anthropology. We believe that being in new situations and experiencing new cultural practices offers students a particular breadth and depth of understanding that being in lecture theatres cannot give. Because of this, we urge our students to get as much hands-on experiential learning as possible during their time with us.
