University of Sussex Anthropology

Anthropology gives you an in-depth understanding of cultures and societies across the world. It helps you grasp your place in the world, so you can make a difference.

Combining anthropology and cultural studies gives you the opportunity to develop a critical understanding of the history and theory of culture, its heritage, policy and practice.
