Program description

Anthropology at Brunel ranked 4th in the UK and 2nd in London (The Guardian 2018).
Anthropology at Brunel is ranked 18th in UK and 4th in London for Anthropology, (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.
If you select our four-year, thin sandwich course you’ll have the opportunity to undertake two placements in countries like India, Nepal, Australia, South Africa, Papua New Guinea and Jamaica, as well as the UK.

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.

If you choose a joint degree with Sociology, Anthropology's sister discipline, you'll look at the foundations of social life and the big issues in contemporary society: inequality, racism, globalisation and migration. This will take your knowledge of culture and society to the next level and you'll develop practical and analytical skills for a changing world.
