We are delighted you have chosen to join us for the next few years, and are looking forward to meeting and getting to know you soon.
Anthropology staff are busy preparing events for the start of term to help you get to know us, and each other, and find out more about what Anthropologists do, and why we do it. We are excited to have you arrive, and are keen to involve you in all aspects of Department life.
Anthropology is a transformative discipline - it will change the way you think, and maybe even who you want to be! We strongly believe that everyone should take at least one Anthropology course in their lifetime, and so we open some of our modules to students from across the University. This means our Department is a busy and vibrant place, where you will also find friendly postgraduates and staff. We conduct research on all manner of topics imaginable (from energy to evolution, and reproduction to rhetoric), so we are sure you will find plenty to interest and enthuse you here, and we are excited to be able to share it all with you.
See you in welcome and orientation week!

I’m Phoebe, one of the second year course reps for LL36 BA Anthropology and Sociology. Although this year has been much different to what I imagined, I've really loved my first year here at Durham. Being a member of the Anthropology department has allowed me to help create and be involved in some excellent events and meet some amazing people, and I can’t wait to see what next term brings! I hope you all have a great summer and hopefully I'll get to meet lots of you!
Once you have completed enrolment you will be able to access Learn Ultra and the Anthropology Student Community site, which will be key resources for your studies in Anthropology at Durham.
The Timetable has been designed so College events don’t clash with any of your academic departmental events, but offer you lots of opportunities to meet your fellow Freshers, find your way around and settle into student life.
We're working hard to welcome you safely and delivering quality education and student experience. Visit our Covid Safety Information webpages for applicants for the latest advice. We can't wait to see you soon!
