Faculty of Social & Historical Sciences


Anthropology | Graduate Open Series

UCL Anthropology was the first UK department to integrate biological and social anthropology with material culture into a broad-based conception of the discipline. Now one of the largest anthropology departments in the UK in both staff and research student numbers, we offer exceptional breadth of expertise. Alongside our strengths in these three core areas, we are committed to incorporating interdisciplinary and interdepartmental connections in our programmes. Students can take advantage of the anthropological community in London and the department's links with European universities and international institutions
