The first year of the Anthropology (Hons) programme at the Oxford Brookes University introduces you to sociocultural and biological perspectives of Anthropology. And our world needs people with the skills and knowledge to respond to these challenges - from global migration and inequality, to disappearing wildlife and climate change.
When you study Anthropology, you’ll tackle some of the biggest issues our societies face. And from day 1, your studies will take you across subjects, cultures, regions and species. You’ll examine wildlife extinction - and you’ll learn about conservation strategies. You’ll explore social justice and international development issues like:
- Global inequality
- The changing climate
This is a diverse course. You’ll explore many different areas. And as you learn, you’ll have opportunities to apply your learning directly to career contexts.This will help you identify the most rewarding career path.
You’ll graduate with strong intercultural awareness - a sought-after skill in today’s employment market. This will set you up for people-orientated careers like:
- human resources and recruitment
- urban planning
- international development
You’ll also develop specialist biological skills and knowledge - equipping you to progress into areas like:
- museum curation
- contract archeology
- biological or primatological research
- animal welfare or zoo management
You’ll also have built up a set of transferable skills that you can take straight into any workplace - like written communication, collaboration and critical thinking.
