The History with Anthropology (Hons) programme at the Goldsmiths, University of London offers an exciting and complementary combination of two humanities disciplines which promote the understanding of human life, culture, and society in the past and present.


The History with Anthropology (Hons) programme at the Goldsmiths, University of London will give you a grounding in both History and Anthropology, teaching you to think about History like an anthropologist, or Anthropology like a historian. Through History, you will learn to study, analyse, and understand the past and how it continues to make vital contributions to how we comprehend and interact with the world around us. Through Anthropology, you will learn to contextualise contemporary societal and cultural issues, and explore the complex and global world we live in. You will have the opportunity to develop knowledge of many key anthropological concepts, such as kinship, ritual, world systems, and development, as well as investigating anthropology in relation to history, politics, religion, philosophy, and psychology.

The programme

  • From day one, you will be introduced to complementary aspects of the two disciplines, developing Historical skills in modules addressing how History is written and how it should be read while focusing on a range of specific historical controversies. You will also be introduced to key concepts in social anthropology and field research methods. Your first year will also give you the choice of studying a range of subjects in History, many of which can be analysed using anthropological approaches.
  • As you progress through your degree, you will continue to develop your expertise in both fields, and eventually choose to focus your studies on either History or Anthropology, depending on how your interests have developed over the first two years of study. Principally, this means either choosing a History Special Subject or writing a dissertation which links the two subjects. Student choice is key here.
