About the Department

Welcome

UCL Anthropology studies humanity in all its aspects: from our evolution as a species, to our relationship with the material world, and our vast variety of social behaviours.

Our department is one of only a few broad based anthropology departments in the UK comprised of four sub-sections including Biological Anthropology, Social Anthropology, Material Culture and Medial Anthropology. Our teaching and research reflects the breadth and depth of this cross and interdisciplinary approach.

UCL is one of the world's top universities and our department is the highest ranked broad-based department in the UK.  

Our research expertise covers over 60 countries and the whole human story from our earliest origins to today's digital age. 

With over 30 academic staff, 400 students and 16 different courses on offer, UCL is a great place to learn the art and science of studying people.

UCL is consistently considered to be amongst the top universities in the world, as indicated by the QS World University Rankings (2012: rank 4, 2011: rank 7, 2009: rank 4).
