The Department of Anthropology at UCL invites you to a day of exploring anthropology at UCL.

One of the largest anthropology departments in the country, staff at UCL Anthropology are engaged in pioneering research at the cutting-edge of four aspects of modern anthropology: Social Anthropology, the comparative study of societies and social change; Biological Anthropology, the study of the evolution and ecology of humans and other primates; Material Culture, the study of how people make, exchange and consume the material world; and Medical Anthropology, the study of how culture influences the experience of illness and the practice of medicine.

In this one-day taster course you will have the chance to learn about anthropology through hands-on workshops with current PhD students and staff. The workshops will give you the chance to learn, to meet anthropologists and to ask questions. You will be asked to get involved and have fun.
