We offer a range of undergraduate programmes tailored to our students' interests and needs
Our 3-year BA Anthropology and BSc Anthropology programmes cover the full breadth of the discipline: social, biological and medical/health. Our BSc Health and Human Sciences focuses on how anthropological theory and methods can be applied to health-related real-world problems. Joint honours programmes allow anthropology to be combined with archaeology or sociology.
Teaching on our degree programmes does not assume prior specialist knowledge. We therefore assume that our applicants have not studied anthropology, but we welcome applications from those who have. We do not ask for any specific A levels and we do include General Studies in offers for our single honours degrees. We also accept a range of alternative entry qualifications including those from abroad. Please see our How To Apply page for more details.
Our students come into our programmes having studied sciences (e.g. biology, physics, maths), social sciences (e.g. economics, geography, anthropology, psychology) and/or humanities (e.g. history, literature, languages), in various combinations. Here are a few of our current students, with the subjects that they studied before coming to Durham to study anthropology:
