What will I learn?

The Anthropology with a Year Abroad BSc looks at the biological, cultural, social and material culture aspects of communities and human beings as well as their evolution and provides the opportunity to spend your third year at a university abroad with one of our many excellent partner institutions.

Degree benefits

  • UCL Anthropology is one of the few departments in the country that combines social anthropology, biological anthropology, material culture and medical anthropology to give you a truly broad-based anthropology degree.

  • You will also be studying at one of the world’s top universities for the subject (ranked 4th in the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2020).

  • During your studies you can learn practically by engaging with objects, photographs and films in the UCL Ethnography Collections, hominin and primate specimens in the Biological Anthropology Collection as well as writing for our in-house print magazine and student-run blog, the Anthropolitan.

Your learning

Our teaching comprises lectures, tutorials, seminars and laboratory classes. Small-group tutorials, normally meeting weekly, are an important element of many modules. Ongoing feedback is given to help you improve your written work.

Assessment

Your modules may be assessed by written coursework, by examination or a mixture of both. Examinations are normally unseen, and their formats vary according to the module. Some combine short answers with essay questions, others rely solely on longer essay answers.

Careers

The broad range of methodological skills and analytical perspectives offered by the UCL Anthropology programme gives our graduates an unusually wide range of career possibilities, many of them directly related to the discipline's cross-cultural focus and to our blending of the social and biological sciences.

Former graduates work in diverse fields, such as journalism, film-making, TV, museums, social work, international development, NGOs and voluntary sector, police, probation, refugee work, wine tasting, market research, advertising, design, PR, marketing, music industry, accountancy, local government, HR, ESL teaching, and as cultural advisors for multinationals.
