Welcome to the Department of Anthropology and Sociology. Our Department is among the most respected in the field of social and cultural anthropology in the UK.
Anthropology is a discipline that bridges the gap between the humanities and the social sciences. It draws on and is in conversation with religion and philosophy, history, cultural and media studies, and literature on the one side, and sociology and politics on the other.
We are curious about the world and innovative in our approach to finding new solutions to recurring problems. If you are interested in nurturing a better understanding of what it is to be human in the complex world in which we live, then this discipline is suited to you.
The department of Anthropology provides innovative teaching that develops students understanding of the world, how society is organised and provides graduates with a wide range of career possibilities.
