Course summary

Join our BA (Hons) Anthropology with Foundation programme and benefit from a foundation year specially designed to support you in developing all the essential skills for success in higher education.From remote coastal communities to online and digital realms, immerse yourself in the variety of cultures on our doorstep and beyond to build your understanding of the world and your role in it.Learn by doing, whether that’s collecting stories from refugees housed in the region, working with local communities to understand how different people engage with sport or using our location on the edge of the peninsula to explore the importance of the sea to coastal communities.At their heart, anthropologists are cultural translators. Become an expert in managing cultural diversity, guided by world-leading academics, and be perfectly placed to help respond to the many (and increasing) political, environmental, economic and cultural challenges we face in society.Explore what humans have in common, and the ways in which we differ, and what this means for tackling social challenges. Look into aspects of human culture that are often overlooked in society.At Plymouth, your degree really is what you make it. From the second year, you can choose to add in modules from across the School of Society & Culture’s 17 disciplines, broadening your perspective with a focus on subjects like Law or Criminology or honing your ability to write creatively about other cultures with a module on Creative Writing. With a focus in your learning on the skills we know employers are looking for – from communication to critical thinking and analysis – you’ll get to apply your skills in relevant settings through our links with local charities, small businesses and community groups.What our students think: “Our lecturer has always been on hand both to aid us academically and care for us as individuals.” – Gregor Sime, BA (Hons) Anthropology
