About Sociology & Anthropology at Bournemouth University

Discover what binds and divides us, explore identity, class, cultural difference and social change, and examine how we experience it all in our daily lives! Taught by expert sociologists, social anthropologists and biological anthropologists, the degree explores the connections between societies and cultures all over the world, both in the present day and the past. What’s more, each year you’ll boost your academic reach and employee potential by designing and carrying out your own research project on a topic of your choice.

Our Sociology & Anthropology degree is as engaging as it is insightful, and what makes it especially interesting is the integrated placement opportunities, either a 30-week or 20-day work placement, which you can complete anywhere in the world, in your second or third year, to dramatically boost your employability with professional skills and crucial contacts.
