Anthropology/Philosophy BA/BSc (Hons)
Oxford Brookes University
Key Course Facts
This is a joint honours course, where you study Anthropology alongside Philosophy. 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. Philosophy tackles some of the most exciting and fundamental questions about human nature and our place in the world, such as whether the mind is a computer and if it is rational to believe in God. You will explore the way we think and reason and the assumptions that underpin what we think we know about ourselves and the world. You will gain a comprehensive understanding of the history of philosophy and contemporary debates, as well as the ability to ask challenging questions, reach reasoned conclusions and express yourself with clarity and precision.
