Anthropology at Brunel is ranked 18th in UK and 4th in London (The Complete University Guide, 2019)

Anthropology at Brunel offers a unique and powerful means for understanding cultural and social diversity in the modern world. Internationally renowned for cutting-edge work in new scholarly fields, we maintain a strong tradition of broad-based anthropological teaching.

Anthropology is concerned with contemporary issues such as multiculturalism, identity politics, racism and ethnic nationalism, changing forms of the family, religious conflict, gender and the political role of culture. It addresses such perennial questions about human nature as: ‘What do we have in common with each other cross-culturally?’ and ‘What makes us different?’

If you are intrigued by these questions and want to study a discipline that will enrich your everyday life and equip you for a great variety of occupations, anthropology is the right course for you.

Studying anthropology means applying what you learn to your real-life observations as well as in a live environment when you carry out a placement or fieldwork.

We have an excellent reputation for our cutting-edge research addressing both global issues – particularly in Africa, South/ Southeast Asia and the South Pacific – and local problems. Our staff are experts in child-focused anthropological studies, development, psychological anthropology and medical anthropology. Our thriving Anthropology Society organises regular parties, film screenings, trips and talks that will help you extend your learning as you socialise.

Your research and fieldwork forms a major part of your degree and will give you a head start in industry when you graduate. Your placement provides important work experience and connects you with organisations and people who will be invaluable when it comes to progressing your career. When you graduate from Brunel you’ll be one of the most employable anthropology graduates in the country. Our graduates have gone on to work at UNICEF, the NHS, NGOs and charities such as Oxfam and Save The Children, as well as in local government, legal sectors, business and the media.
