UCL Anthropology


Undergraduate degrees

You can choose to study a three or four year (with a year abroad) degree in anthropology or a three year combined degree with archaeology.

What distinguishes our degrees from other anthropology degrees in the UK is its intellectual breadth, bringing together Evolutionary and Environmental Anthropology, Social Anthropology, Material Culture, Medical Anthropology and Public Anthropology under a single programme of study. Our department attracts students from all over the world, spanning a diverse and fascinating array of cultures, which hugely benefits what we teach and learn in anthropology.

The undergraduate degree programmes will prepare you for a wide range of career possibilities such as museum, journalism, government, public health, local and international NGO work, as well as further academic study.
