Course Summary:
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.
Modules:
In the Anthropology element of the course, what you study includes: Biological anthropology examines humans within a broad evolutionary framework, including variation in biological characteristics, genes, diseases, the interaction between people and their environment, and the behaviours and comparative anatomy of primates and early hominins. Social anthropology includes the cross-cultural study of social organisation, kinship and gender, political structure, economic institutions, religion and ritual, values and beliefs, and social change. In the Geography element of the course, what you study includes: Year 1 core modules include two introductory modules to human geography and environmental geography. In Years 2 and 3, you specialise in the areas of geography that interest you most. The Year 2 compulsory Geographical Enquiry and Field Research module emphasises the importance of fieldwork as part of your training and is undertaken as part of a week-long residential.

Oxford Brookes was amazing! The campus was beautiful, really modern and clean, and the facilities there were great. Our course had a good mix of practical applied work and theoretical stuff in lectures, and it really gave me a deep understanding that I could use after my degree. Speaking of, the Careers service was also top notch, and they had loads of stuff going on that helped me walk straight into graduate employment. The student support services were also really comprehensive, with lots of financial and accommodation advice which helped ease my mind a lot.

    Excellent and nearly perfect if it were not for the lack of social activities and ice breakers that are needed to meet more people.

    It is a good vibe, lecturers are very helpful and facilities and location are all perfect.
