Facilities and Staff
The Anthropology Department at UCL integrates biological anthropology, social anthropology and material culture into a broad-based conception of the discipline. We are particularly committed to retaining this breadth by incorporating considerable interdisciplinary and interdepartmental linkages in our programme while at the same time retaining the strength of the three core areas of the subject.
At present the Department conducts research in 49 countries, houses the editors of three international journals and runs five seminar series (Biological Anthropology, Material Culture, Medical Anthropology, Social Anthropology, and West Africa). It sponsors a departmental working paper series and provides the base for the Centre for Medical Anthropology, the Centre for Human Ecology, and the Virtual Centre for the Social Environment and (with the Department of Biology) the Centre for Genetic Anthropology.

After You Leave
Some recent graduates of the programme have gone on to do PhDs whilst others have pursued an immensely wide range of professional careers both within and beyond anthropology. This has included work in National and International NGO’s and government posts (CARE International; educational NGO in Tanzania; DfID; Touchstone Trust for social justice; Brazilian government – department for indigenous people’s rights; UN); environmental or developmental consultancies and research institutes (in agriculture, forestry, conservation) and teaching institutes overseas (Moscow, Korea).
