This course teaches the fundamentals of anthropology - the comparative study of human diversity. Social and linguistic anthropology explore how humans make and view their worlds, drawing on ethnographic studies of society, culture and language from around the world. Evolutionary anthropology includes the study of human evolution, primates and biological and behavioural human diversity. Students will develop their knowledge of the variety and evolution of human customs, social organisation and behaviour. Students will learn to apply theories and research techniques used across the discipline as well as receiving training in both qualitative and quantitative methodologies and in descriptive, analytic and project management techniques. Students will undertake fieldwork in communities in Bristol and further afield to develop their skills. In the first year, students will take a series of units introducing them to social and linguistic anthropology, evolutionary and biological anthropology, and anthropological approaches to material culture. In the second year, core units cover key research methods and theoretical frameworks. Students can choose from a range of optional units on specific themes and geographical regions in the second and third years. In the third year, students can pursue a specialist area of interest, working closely with a member of staff to write a dissertation on an original topic of their choice.
