This degree combines archaeology and anthropology throughout the course, offering an unusually broad perspective on human societies from earliest prehistory to the present. Six schools specialise in these subjects: the Schools of Archaeology and of Social and Cultural Anthropology, the Ashmolean Museum, the Pitt Rivers Museum, the Oxford University Museum of Natural History, and the Research Laboratory for Archaeology and the History of Art. Students will study: Human evolution; get to grips with major transformational processes in human history such as the development of farming, the emergence of towns and trading systems and the spread of world religions; assess the relative importance of environmental, genetic and social factors in understanding patterns of human growth and nutrition; learn why societies structure their families, economies and political systems in the ways that they do; investigate how material culture represents and reproduces beliefs and ideologies.
