Leading UK university for research in Anthropology.

Anthropology is the study of people. We examine the general question of what it means to be human. It is an interdisciplinary subject that encourages students to make links between different areas of knowledge (such as sociology, ecology and palaeontology) while examining human variation and that of our closest relatives, living and extinct. You will explore the versatility and diversity of humankind as you focus on differences in cultures, politics and religions around the world.

Students look at important issues such as health and illness, globalisation, poverty and development as well as human species with a focus on evolution, variation, diet, and adaptation to diverse environments.
