Brunel Anthropology is a dynamic department with a critical and engaged approach to understanding the world and our place in it. Internationally renowned for cutting-edge work in new scholarly fields, the department also maintains a strong tradition of broad-based anthropological teaching. We provide students at all levels with unique opportunities to obtain profession-enhancing research experience. As a result, our graduates have one of the best national employment rates.
Brunel anthropology students (single subject and joint-honours) can opt for a conventional three-year degree or our innovative four-year ‘thin sandwich’ degree with two fieldwork placements in the UK or overseas.
Alongside our thriving MRes and PhD programmes, we lead in medical, psychological and psychiatric anthropology, the anthropology of childhood and education. Our new MSc in Anthropology of International Development launches this October.
Brunel’s anthropologists are experts in their fields and conduct research applicable well beyond the academy. Find out more about our two groundbreaking research centres CRIMA and CARCYE.
