Course summary

Overview

On our Graduate Diploma in Anthropology, you will explore the holistic and comparative breadth of anthropology. And study humans from a variety of social, cultural, biological and evolutionary perspectives.

Our course allows you to gain a qualification in anthropology at advanced undergraduate level as:

  • a graduate from another discipline
  • or if you have equivalent qualifications or work experience.

We are one of the few universities in the UK to teach social and biological anthropology side by side.

You will be part of a dynamic community of research scholars undertaking internationally recognised and world-leading research. And benefit from excellent learning resources, both at Oxford Brookes and at Oxford’s museums and libraries including:

  • the Bodleian Library
  • the Radcliffe Science Library
  • the Pitt Rivers Museum
  • the Museum of Natural History

You also have the option to go on a field trip to Apenhuel Primate Park in the Netherlands.

Learning and assessment

Throughout the course, you will receive intensive training in selected aspects of anthropology at advanced undergraduate level.

If you wish to continue with anthropology at masters or a higher level, such as PhD, this course can constitute a conversion course.

You can choose to follow a pathway focusing on social or biological anthropology, or take advantage of our broad expertise by studying both.

There are two compulsory modules that you will be able to choose from our four core components in theory and methods. You will also put together a programme of six additional modules according to your aims and interests, including an option for independent study with an individual academic supervisor.

Career prospects

Many students choose the graduate diploma as a route to further study, continuing their education at master's and PhD level. However, anthropology graduates go on to a variety of careers including:

  • overseas development aid
  • environmental maintenance
  • education
  • eco-tourism
  • urban planning
  • civil service
