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. LOCATION: At the University of Plymouth, set in the heart of Britain’s ‘Ocean City’ a rich student experience and employability is at the heart of our offer, and we have deep and lasting partnerships across the world. As a Plymouth student, you have access to an amazing range of social, sports, leisure and extra-curricular activities to help you upskill, relax, unwind or engage with people outside of your study time. Our award winning Student’s Union (UPSU) is an independent registered charity that seeks to represent all the students of Plymouth University. You may want to join one of our 140 clubs or societies – or set up one of your own. Academic, professional services and UPSU are here to help you make the most of your time as a student, and prepare you for a fulfilling future life. AFTER THE COURSE: 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 allows students to specialise within the curriculum, and prepares graduates for a range of jobs in a globalised world including: development, health, marketing, business, government, the creative industries, and cultural resource management.
