University of Birmingham has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
Our BA in Anthropology and Politicals gives you access to modules in both these subjects and enables you to build a degree programme that suits your interests. You will learn about human nature and be encouraged to take part in debates and to research different theories. You will learn from renowned experts in their field and develop skills that will be valued by employers. Our graduates tend to have little difficulty in finding interesting careers in a wide variety of fields.
First-year modules cover a broad base of the subject and are designed to introduce you to ways of studying at university. By the final year the modules you take will become more specialised and reflect the research expertise of the academic staff. More detailed module information can be found on the ‘Course detail’ tab on the University of Birmingham’s coursefinder web pages.
