We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Anthropology combines the study of the cultural grounding of social life with the material evidence of the human past.
In Social Anthropology we study the relationships between and within groups of people who are ‘not like us’ – from whichever group of people it is that ‘we’ as researchers might belong. Through comparison we discover the surprising differences in everyday living around the world.
In Archaeology we study the material evidence of the human past – from monument structures like the ceremonial statues of Rapa Nui (Easter Island) to smaller portable artefacts such as posts and stone tools – to better understand our human origins, and societies and environments of the past.
Please note: Students who wish to specialise in Archaeology will need to major in Anthropology.
