Anthropology with a Year Abroad - University of Kent

Our Anthropology degree gives you the exciting opportunity to spend a year abroad. Previous students have been to Japan, the Netherlands, Denmark, Czech Republic and Finland. Studying and living in a different culture can be a transformational experience, both on a personal and professional level. Whether your background is in arts, humanities or sciences, you will find our BSc in Anthropology an exciting, stimulating and rewarding opportunity. In your first year, you are introduced to anthropology, its foundations and its leading thinkers. Optional modules allow you to expand on areas of particular interest, which may include violence and conflict, or human physiology and disease. You can also benefit from practical learning through lab-based sessions and a number of visits away from campus. In your second and final years, you take compulsory modules that further your understanding of the key areas of biological and social anthropology. You study issues such as power and economy, religion, cosmological imagination, and biology and human identity. You also enjoy a wide and varied choice of modules enabling you to expand your perspective or develop a specialism. You can study the anthropology of gender, business, health or creativity; take modules in visual anthropology or discover more about primate communication. In your final year, you undertake a research project in anthropological science, choosing your topic with your project supervisor. You benefit from the intellectual breadth of our programme, and the high degree of flexibility in shaping it to your interests as they grow and develop. The year abroad allows an immersive experience of living and studying in a different culture. You spend a year studying at one of our partner institutions in Japan or Europe between the second and final years. You can also use this experience to start your dissertation by conducting fieldwork.
