Overview

Staff at Birmingham teaching in both Anthropology and History have an outstanding international reputation for excellence in both teaching and research, providing you with valuable skills in analysis, research, reasoning, time-management and being able to present yourself confidently orally and in writing.  

The Anthropology and History (Hons) programme from the University of Birmingham  aims to cover modern, early modern and medieval Britain, Europe and the wider world alongside the critical, comparative perspective offered by anthropology.  Whatever your interests - whether global, cultural, social, military, diplomatic, political, economic, military or religious history - there is someone in the department teaching your kind of history.  Moreover, historians in other departments in the University expand the range of courses on offer, notably in the fields of Byzantine and African history. After a thorough grounding of modules in the first year of your degree course, we offer a wide range of optional modules to study in subsequent years, culminating in a final year dissertation.

These are key skills that will enable you to pursue either further study in History or Anthropology disciplines or move into employment in a wide range of other careers.
