Course summary

This course combines archaeology’s examination of material evidence from our past and present with anthropology’s focus on human development and contemporary cultures and societies. Studying these two disciplines together allows your insight and understanding of what it means to be human.

This understanding will be crucial in addressing issues critical to our shared global future, including:

  • the relationship between humans and environmental change
  • inequality, migration and identity
  • population growth and development
  • human diets and health

Career

Studying a joint honours degree in archaeology and anthropology means you will develop a broad range of subject-specific and transferable skills in the humanities and the sciences, preparing you for a diverse range of career opportunities.

Anthropology can be a path into international development (with governmental, inter-governmental and non-governmental organisations), agriculture, health, and social research, and social policy.

Archaeology, meanwhile, can lead to a career in commercial archaeology or the heritage sector, perhaps in a museum or archive, or you could take advantage of development-led archaeology opportunities in planning departments and commercial companies. We have long-established, excellent relationships with employers within the archaeology and related sectors, including Oxford Archaeology and Cotswold Archaeology, both of which regularly consider our graduates for vacancies.
