Anthropology is the comparative study of humankind in the cultures of the world, both past and present and our BA (Hons) Anthropology degree at University College Cork brings together the many related disciplines to examine what defines us as humans and how we came to be the way we are. This exciting programme offers a unique way of looking at the world, offering a greater understanding of the human experience and a strong sense of global citizenship to meet the challenges of the future.
Anthropology takes part in the long conversation about what it is to be human and gives flesh and blood to these fundamental questions. It is a genuinely cosmopolitan discipline in that it does not privilege certain ways of life above others, but charts and compares the full range of solutions to the perennial human challenges.
This discipline is of its time – it is crucial that we come to terms with a globalised world. Our responsibility as Anthropologists is to facilitate conversations across real or imagined cultural divides. This degree programme will go some way into addressing these many issues and parachute you into a career, or onto a path of further study, that will totally engage you.
Our BA in Anthropology programme addresses these many questions in a course that will provide you with a strong foundation in not only Anthropology, but the sub-fields of Archaeology and Sociology, as well as exposure to disciplines such as Celtic Civilization, Ethnomusicology, History, Philosophy, Ethnography and Folklore; and Religions and Global Diversity.
