Anthropology is the study of people throughout the world, their evolutionary history, how they behave, adapt to different environments, communicate and socialise with one another. The study of anthropology is concerned both with the biological features that make us human (such as physiology, genetic makeup, nutritional history and evolution) and with social aspects (such as language, culture, politics, family and religion). It considers such fascinating questions as how peoples’ behaviour changes over time, how people move about the world, why and how people from distant parts of the world and dissimilar cultures are different and the same. Whether studying a religious community in London, or human evolutionary fossils in the UAE, this course is concerned with many aspects of people’s lives: the everyday practices as well as the more dramatic rituals, ceremonies and processes which define us as human beings.

What skills do you need for a Anthropology course?

Up-To-Date

While everyone else is up-to-date with Kylie Jenner’s newest picture on Instagram, you’re more inclined to track conflicts and world issues, across all countries and how it affects their people. You find CNN more interesting than Channel E!

Inquisitive

Anthropologists in any field have to naturally question developments and issues. If you know A is happening, how does it affect the people? In turn, how do they react? You’ll need to dig deep from the surface to truly uncover how people have changed over time and will change some more in time to come.

Adventurous

While many can’t wait to travel to amazing islands and captivating archipelagos, you’re more interested in going to places where real issues happen, something your job will demand out of you.
