Anthropology

What is it to be human? How do we live? Where did we come from and where are we going? These are some of the big questions which you will explore during your Anthroplogy degree. Anthropology is the study of the cultural and biological diversity of humans. At Roehampton we cover classic themes of social anthropology (such as kinship, witchcraft, cannibalism and indigenous cosmologies) and elements of biological anthropology, including human ecology and adaption, primate biology and behaviour, and human evolution. Study with us for a highly dynamic learning experience, taught by staff engaged in world-class research. Themes such as violence, sexuality, wildlife conservation, global health or mental illness are studied from social and biological points of view. In addition, this course focuses on topics such as the relationship between culture and biology, gender and performance, globalisation and tourism, political/historical ecology and medical anthropology. The anthropology of science and the study of human-animal relations are also explored in considerable depth. We run some of the UK's most innovative modules. In The Anthropology of Tourism, you will study tourists, their motivations and influences through a series of field trips, films, lectures, and discussion. In Human Evolution, you will learn about all aspects of the evolution of hunter and gatherers from their diet, foraging practices, technology, residence, mobility, reproduction, cooperation and social organisations.
