This is a combined honours course, where you study Anthropology alongside Geography. Brookes is distinctive among UK universities in teaching biological and social anthropology in tandem. Biological anthropology explores our evolutionary history, our response to environmental challenges and our relationship to the other primates, while social anthropology helps you to appreciate and respect the customs and beliefs of other societies. Brookes is home to the Anthropology Centre for Conservation, Environment and Development, and the Europe-Japan Research Centre, while other resources include the world-renowned Pitt Rivers Museum of Anthropology and World Archaeology just a mile away. An Anthropology society is also led by students. This popular course explores contemporary issues that affect our everyday lives such as globalisation, environmental management, conservation, geoarchaeology, nature and society, the problems of contemporary cities, and culture and landscape, as well as alternative ways of solving the problems associated with them. Our laboratory facilities enable you to perform scientific tests ranging from detailed soil analysis of core samples gathered on field trips, to experimental modelling and rainfall simulation.
