Course content

On our Graduate Diploma in Anthropology, you will explore the holistic and comparative breadth of anthropology. And study humans from a variety of social, cultural, biological and evolutionary perspectives.

Our course allows you to gain a qualification in anthropology at advanced undergraduate level as:

  • a graduate from another discipline
  • or if you have equivalent qualifications or work experience.

We are one of the few universities in the UK to teach social and biological anthropology side by side.

You will be part of a dynamic community of research scholars undertaking internationally recognised and world-leading research. And benefit from excellent learning resources, both at Oxford Brookes and at Oxford’s museums and libraries including:

  • the Bodleian Library
  • the Radcliffe Science Library
  • the Pitt Rivers Museum
  • the Museum of Natural History.

You also have the option to go on a field trip to Apenhuel Primate Park in the Netherlands.
