Anthropology

Are you interested in working to solve human problems? Anthropology is an exciting discipline to study as it encompasses all facets of human life. BA Anthropology at the University of Plymouth is grounded in both cultural and applied anthropology. Cultural anthropology, as the title suggests, considers all aspects of human culture, from human behaviour and culture change, from international development to acting as a culture broker. In simplest terms, applied anthropology is using anthropological thought and methods to solve human problems, be they in health, development, social justice, or virtually any other human arena. We mix core aspects of cultural anthropology with an applied approach to give students the opportunity to explore personal topics of interest and future employment, while learning by doing. * Build fieldwork skills and competence right from the beginning of your degree. * Learn and understand how anthropology can be applied in real-world situations. * Take the opportunity to specialise in particular areas of interest including: development, health, museums, or social justice. * Learn within a multidisciplinary environment – the programme, assessments and set projects are designed to allow you to benefit from, and make use of, a far-reaching range of disciplines. * Work with staff who are leading experts in their field. * Industry and professional connections – we work with you to identify your areas of specialisms and employ University and external networks to create contacts. After the course: As a graduate, you’ll be equipped to analyse and impact on the ways in which human beings shape, and are shaped, by social, cultural and environmental contexts, and ready to work in a variety of professions including: development, education, health, government, heritage, social enterprise, business and finance, and cultural resource management. Employers of all kinds desire staff with intercultural awareness and communication skills, analytical and problem solving skills, and who are not afraid of working with others across sectors. The Plymouth degree in Anthropology will allow you to specialise within the curriculum, and prepare you for a range of jobs in a globalised world including: development, health, marketing, business, government, the creative industries, and cultural resource management.
