Anthropology

Anthropology

Anthropology degrees set out to investigate humankind and human society, from the physical evolution of the human body and brain, through to the political, cultural and linguistic practices of modern societies.
You may draw upon subjects such as sociology and economics, which seek to better understand individual and group behaviors through the application of scientific methods. However, even the broadest sociology or economics degree is unlikely to come close to matching the range of topics and approaches that may be offered within the different types of anthropology courses. What other degree would allow you to explore subjects as diverse as forensic science, religious symbolism, language structure, and similarities between the human brain and those of other animals?
