Anthropology is for creative and critical thinkers, fascinated by every aspect of human life. It addresses the big question – what makes us human? You study how we evolved, why we live in different sorts of societies, and how we interact with both one another and the environment. You develop insight into social and cultural difference and an understanding of the history, behaviour, and evolution of our species – gaining a perspective that is particularly valuable to employers. The School of Anthropology and Conservation uses a thought-provoking mix of teaching methods, including lectures, small seminar groups, field visits and laboratory sessions. You are taught by research academics at the forefront of their fields while our excellent student-to-staff ratio ensures a high level of academic support. We are one of the largest and longest established groups of anthropologists in the UK. Our expertise spans the full breadth of the discipline and includes an innovative group of primatologists, a team who excel in paleoanthropology, and a centre for human ecology pushing the boundaries of environmental change research. Whether your background is in arts, humanities or sciences, you will find our BSc in Anthropology an exciting, stimulating and rewarding opportunity. Specialisation If you are a budding Biological or Social Anthropologist, you can choose modules in these specific areas throughout your degree. Specialising in this way will allow you to graduate with either a BSc Anthropology (Biological) or BA Anthropology (Social). Otherwise, a BSc in Anthropology will signify your expertise across the discipline.
