Anthropology - University of Bristol

This course teaches you the fundamentals of anthropology - the comparative study of human diversity. Social and linguistic anthropology explore how humans make and view their worlds, drawing on ethnographic studies of society, culture and language. Evolutionary anthropology includes the study of human evolution, primates and biological and behavioural human diversity. Developing your knowledge of the variety and evolution of human customs, social organisation and behaviour, you will learn to apply theories and research techniques used across the discipline. You will receive training in both qualitative and quantitative methodologies and in descriptive, analytic and project management techniques. To develop your skills you will undertake fieldwork in communities in Bristol and further afield. In your first year you will take a series of units introducing you to social and linguistic anthropology, evolutionary and biological anthropology, and anthropological approaches to material culture. In your second year, core units cover key research methods and theoretical frameworks. You can choose from a range of optional units on specific themes and geographical regions in the second and third years. The third year provides an opportunity to pursue a specialist area of interest, working closely with a member of staff to write a dissertation on an original topic of your choice.
