Anthropology involves the study of cultural differences and similarities in a globalised world.

The University's theoretical and analytical interests include: development; markets and exchange systems; colonialism, globalisation and the transformation of traditional societies; symbolic and artistic systems; and visual anthropology. The College also focuses on: the anthropology of gender; popular culture; nationalism, post-colonialism and post-socialism; human health and ecology; kinship and social organisation; biosocial anthropology, and primatology. Other topics include: medical, nutritional and demographic anthropology; language and culture; religion and ritual; anthropology of emotion; urban societies; the history of anthropology; and rural change in Europe.
Fieldwork is an important component of study at PhD level and students are encouraged to conduct intensive fieldwork, for which they normally receive financial support.
