Anthropology explores what it means to be human by looking at how people create rules and norms, and how they use beliefs and expectations to organise social life
An important part of undertaking Anthropology will be to go into the world to find out what people are doing. We encourage our students to practise, not just learn about, Anthropology.
We believe that being in new situations and experiencing new cultural practices offers students a particular breadth and depth of understanding that being in lecture theatres cannot give. Because of this, we urge our students to get as much hands-on experiential learning as possible during their time with us.
Anthropology explores the fundamentals of what it means to be human. It takes the whole world as its point of interest and brings one face to face with the eye-opening variety of human behaviours both in the present and from the past.
Anthropology students at UWTSD have the opportunity to observe and engage with communities and cultures first-hand. For instance, students are able to undertake Voluntary Work Abroad and be active participants in the staff’s research projects, both in the UK and abroad.
Grades are important; however, our offers are not solely based on academic results. We are interested in creative people that demonstrate a strong commitment to their chosen subject area, and therefore we welcome applications from individuals from a wide range of backgrounds.
To assess student suitability for their chosen course, we normally arrange interviews for all applicants at which your skills, achievements and life experience will be considered as well as your qualifications.
