UK Anthropology Courses

Introduction to Anthropology

Anthropology takes in the study of human societies and social sciences, asking questions of the differences between groups of people around the world, and what that can teach us of our own lives. Areas of study such as linguistics, literature and history figure strongly in forming arguments and lines of reason which will help a student understand the wide variety of ways in which people around the world live.
