Oxford Brookes University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
This is a combined honours course, where you study Anthropology alongside English Literature. English Literature offers the opportunity to study an exciting range of modules, blending the study of classic texts and literary traditions with current theoretical models for understanding literature as a dynamic, global phenomenon. Our course is renowned for its inspirational teaching and research excellence. In the 2013 National Student Survey (Source: Unistats), 93 per cent of students agreed that staff had made the subject interesting. Brookes is distinctive among UK universities in teaching biological and social anthropology in tandem. Biological anthropology explores our evolutionary history, our response to environmental challenges and our relationship to the other primates, while social anthropology helps you to appreciate and respect the customs and beliefs of other societies.
In Year 1, modules include Culture, Criticism and Literature, World Literature, Critical Theory, Shakespeare, Introduction to Biological Anthropology, and Introduction to Social Anthropology. In Year 2 English Literature modules include American Literature and Culture, The Literature of Space, The Novel and Modernity, and Culture, Crime and Transgression; in Anthropology modules include Methods and Analysis in Biological Anthropology; Social Anthropology Theory; Methods in Social Anthropology; Human Evolutionary Biology and Geography. In Year 3, specialist optional modules offer intensive, small-group teaching in a particular area of literary study. In addition, you will choose either the Contemporary Literature (Synoptic) module or the Dissertation Module, working one-to-one with a specialist lecturer. In Anthropology, optional modules include Advanced Topics in Social Anthropology, People and Other Animals, Hunter Gatherer Ecology, Applied Anthropology, and Palaeopathology.
