About Anthropology at Bournemouth University

Why study BSc (Hons) Anthropology at BU?

  • Anthropology is the study of humans: what unites us as a species, and how and why individuals and groups vary both biologically and culturally across space and time.  
  • With comprehensive study of the dual biological/social nature of humans and human societies, past and present - gain an understanding of human biological and cultural diversity.  
  • Undertake hands-on practical and laboratory work, all delivered by leading academics with 100% of students studying Anthropology agreeing that staff are good at explaining things. 
  • Anthropological theory and fieldwork, cultural ecology, human-environment interaction, human evolution, and material culture and technology are all key areas of study.  
  • Select subject options from biological and social anthropology and allied disciplines, to build your study around your own interests, passions, and career aspirations.  
  • Complete a five- or a 30-week placement to apply skills developed as well as build a network of professional contacts and a strong CV, enhancing your career prospects.  

This degree - one of just a handful at UK universities to offer complementary units covering social anthropology alongside the core focus on biological anthropology – provides a firm foundation for understanding how societies work.
