What it means to be human

Anthropology is the study of people and analyses what it means to be human in a wide range of contexts and places: from the study of material culture to popular culture, public health policies and the world’s religions. If you are interested in understanding how humans live and work together, along with the physical and cultural changes across borders, then our Bachelor of Arts (Anthropology) is perfect for you.

Anthropology can be used to address some of society’s most compelling questions on war, gender, discrimination, racism and other divisions of power. Studying anthropology with us goes beyond the traditional idea of studying remote societies and cultures to look at the social and cultural experiences of our own lives. The degree will provide you the opportunity to delve deeper into the questions you ask about the world, and provide you with the academic skills needed to make a difference.

This degree will equip you with the skills to work in areas such as social planning, community development and social policy, as well as in a wide range of public service and welfare occupations. To become a professional anthropologist or sociologist you will need to undertake a fourth year Honours degree.
