Anthropology


The UCL Anthropology Department was the first in the UK to integrate biological and social anthropology with material culture into a broad-based conception of the discipline. It is now one of the largest anthropology departments in the UK in terms of both staff and research student numbers, offering exceptional breadth of expertise. Whilst retaining the strength of the three core areas, we continue our commitment to an integrated approach through the incorporation of considerable interdisciplinary and interdepartmental linkages in our programmes. Students are encouraged to take full advantage of the wider anthropological community in London and the department’s strong links with European universities and international institutions.
