Overview

Anthropology is the study of human diversity around the world. In studying anthropology, you will learn how different societies live together and think about such topics as family, sex, religion, art, and economics and gain skills increasingly in demand in a globalized and automated world.

Issues addressed in our modules include:

  • Does globalisation mean the end of cultural difference?
  • Can a post-conflict society heal?
  • How do ritual traditions, musical performances, and art shape cultural identities?
  • How do some people become willing to die for a group?

Through classroom modules, optional placements, performance ensembles and your own anthropological fieldwork, you will also gain valuable skills in critical thinking, cross-cultural understanding, researching, interviewing, writing, and presenting.
