Degree benefits

  • UCL's Anthropology Department is one of the few in the country that combines Social Anthropology, Biological Anthropology, Material Culture and Medical Anthropology to give you a truly broad-based anthropology degree.
  • One of the largest anthropology departments in the UK, with highly-rated research, offering an exceptionally wide range of courses taught by academic staff at the forefront of the discipline.
  • Access to excellent resources including extensive literature in the UCL Library and other nearby libraries, such as that of the Centre for Anthropology at the British Museum.
  • We have an outstanding collection of ethnographic items and the Napier Primate Collection, and work closely with the ethnographic department of the British Museum and with the Horniman Museum.

In the first year, you take compulsory courses covering the three branches of the programme; Biological Anthropology, Social Anthropology and Material Culture. Biological Anthropology focuses on contemporary human-environment interactions and human evolution. Social Anthropology explores social and cultural differences and their determinants, from indigenous groups to modern Western economies. Material Culture studies human, social and environmental relationships through the evidence of people's construction of their material world.
Your first year also includes a three-day field trip to discover ethnographic research and participant observation in ritual, landscape, and techniques

Your second year includes both compulsory courses and options. In the third year, you have a free choice of five options alongside a dissertation.

Your learning

Our teaching comprises lectures, tutorials, seminars and laboratory classes. Small-group tutorials, normally meeting weekly, are an important part of many courses. Ongoing feedback is given to help you improve your written work.

Assessment

Your courses may be assessed by written coursework, by examination or a mixture of both. Examinations are normally unseen and their formats vary according to the course. Some combine short answers with essay questions, others rely solely on longer essay answers.
