Our Head of Department says:
We are 10th in the world in the 2022 QS rankings and 2nd among anthropology departments in the UK in the Research Excellence Framework (REF).
I have the fortune to be Head of a Department that is exciting and challenging for students and academic colleagues. We are a diverse, multi-lingual and engaged community. Our teaching is research-led, and our curriculum is sharp, provocative and cutting-edge. We lead the way in exploring the big issues of our time. We grapple with the theory and practice of real world issues, while not letting go of the older question of our discipline: what does it mean to be human? Our programmes are built on the premise that the world has many layers, faces, perspectives and forms of knowledge. Across our programmes of study, students acquire methods and theories to help understand the world, we hopefully also inspire them to want to make a difference.
