The Anthropology programme at the University of Roehampton also cover topics such as the relationship between culture and biology, gender and performance, globalisation and tourism, political/historical ecology, medical anthropology, the anthropology of science, and the study of human-animal relations.  

You’ll enjoy a dynamic learning experience, and be taught by staff engaged in world-class research. Learning more about everything from violence, sexuality and wildlife conservation, to global health and mental illness, you’ll work with anthropologists specialising in these topics. 

We offer some of the most innovative modules in the UK. In ‘The Anthropology of Tourism’, for example, you’ll get to study tourists, and their motivations and influences, through an inspiring mix of field trips, films, lectures and discussion. We also run an exciting ‘Hunter Gatherers and Human Evolution’ module, where you can get a deep insight into how hunters and gatherers evolved, looking at their diet, foraging practices, technology, residences, mobility, reproduction, cooperation and social organisation.

Career options

You’ll leave this course with the practical skills and knowledge to pursue many different careers. Our anthropology graduates have found work at all levels within conservation, teaching, journalism, international business, overseas development work, heritage and cultural sectors, charities and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) such as OXFAM and Children in Need. You could also continue your studies at postgraduate level.
