About the course

The Core Spine

The core spine of Global Challenges is the common thread running through this degree, and will explore questions associated with how the citizens of tomorrow will face, analyse, and manage inevitable challenges related to the ‘wicked problems’ of our time. These themes will form the central framework of the degree programme, taking an in-depth look at issues such as climate change, migration, terrorism, aging populations, food and water scarcity, poverty and countless others. As well as undertaking the core spine of degree, you will have the choice to follow one of four pathways that specialize in an area of Global Challenges. These complementary strands have been selected not only because they all represent pressing issues faced by the international community, but also because of Brunel’s existing and emerging expertise in these areas.

Planetary Health

The impact of human activity must be addressed and managed so that we do not continue to damage our ecology and ultimately ourselves. Brunel University London is a member of the Planetary Health Alliance, a consortium of over 70 dedicated universities, NGOs, government entities, research institutes, and other partners around the world committed to advancing planetary health.

To adequately address the threats of accelerating environmental changes, there is a need for graduates able to examine the ecological determinants of human health and predict their likely consequences at both geographical and temporal scales, and within different socio-cultural and economic contexts. This understanding will enable them to contribute to better governance, better resource management, better planning and better design in order to mitigate the growing risks.

The scope of the strand straddles across environmental, health and social sciences. On completion, students will understand that the way that humanity manages Earth’s natural systems is a primary factor of future global health.

The Planetary Health strand comprises of three elements;

  • Ecosystem transformations includes the thematic areas that are centred around environmental topics: Natural Disasters, Urbanization, Pollution, Climate Change, Water Scarcity
  • Health impacts includes the thematic areas that are centred around public health topics: Infectious diseases, Non-communicable diseases, Physical health, Mental health, Nutrition Civil strife and displacement
  • Socio-cultural and economic contexts includes thematic areas that are centred around social and cultural and economic aspects of public health.

Aims

The aim of this new degree programme is to develop your knowledge and understanding of the natural sciences, humanities, social sciences, technology, philosophy and ethics and how they can contribute to identifying, understanding and responding to global issues and concerns. You will learn the critical, practical and research skills needed for successful self-directed work and for contributing to a shared objective as a team player.

Global Challenges is specifically focused around developing the ability to not only critically question ideas on knowledge, values and experience, but also engage with them. Criticising and re-interpreting major texts, conducting though experiments and developing evidence-based responses in written, oral and audio visual will all make up part of your study. This means, once you complete the Global Challenges degree, you’ll have the confidence to identify the underlying issues in a variety of contemporary global situations and the understanding of the sociological, political and economic implications of human interaction.

About the course

Anthropology offers a unique and powerful means for understanding cultural and social diversity in the modern world.

It is concerned with contemporary issues such as multiculturalism, identity politics, racism and ethnic nationalism, changing forms of the family, religious conflict, gender, and the political role of culture.

It also addresses perennial questions about human nature, such as: ‘What do we have in common with each other cross-culturally?’ and ‘What makes us different?’

If you are intrigued by these questions and want to study a discipline that will enrich your everyday life as well as equip you for a great variety of occupations, anthropology is the right course for you.

Aims

Anthropology is a cosmopolitan social science that takes human diversity for its subject, providing a unique means of understanding cultural and social differences. Students from a wide variety of backgrounds are welcomed.

Our course provides a broad based grounding in the wider social sciences, integrating key anthropological concepts with fieldwork based research. Fieldwork is an excellent preparation for work and a chance to make useful contacts.

You will gain a solid foundation in core anthropological topics such as politics, religion and kinship, and the chance to venture into new and cutting-edge areas, notably in medical anthropology and the anthropology of childhood, education and youth.

About the course

The Anthropology and Sociology degree is particularly suited to students who are curious about their own and other societies, and who are interested in understanding social processes and meanings in the world around them.

Rigorous training is provided in a range of methodologies and research skills appropriate to anthropology and sociology.

Anthropology at Brunel

Anthropology at Brunel is one of the more outward-looking and cosmopolitan social sciences, its subject being the documentation and explanation of cultural diversity.

The course differs from Anthropology courses at other universities because of the broad social science perspective from which it is taught.

Our research has an international reputation, with particular expertise in child-focused anthropological research and medical anthropology.

Sociology at Brunel

A central theme of Sociology at Brunel is the study of the development of techno-cultural phenomena such as media and information technology, and environmental issues, which straddle traditional conceptual distinctions between the social, the natural, the technical and the material.

At Brunel, Sociology has developed a particularly close relationship with Communication and Media Studies, reflecting and emphasising the central and ever-increasing importance of the communications media within our culture.

Among the more specific interests of Brunel sociologists are, for example, social theory, celebrity culture, the influence of the media, environmental risk, media regulation, media discourses, and contemporary social structure and change, urban spaces, and addiction and deviance. These various interests strongly reflect the options available in Level 3 of our degree course.

Aims

Anthropology is a cosmopolitan social science that takes human diversity for its subject, providing a unique means of understanding cultural and social differences. Sociology, its sister discipline, looks at the foundations of social life and the big issues in contemporary society: inequality, racism, globalisation, and migration.

Take your knowledge of culture and society to the next level and equip yourself with a big range of practical and analytical skills for a changing world.

  • You will apply anthropology ideas to practical issues and will gain a solid grounding in a broad range of social science topics, including sociology, social theory, social anthropology, psychology, communications and media.
  • Special emphasis is placed on cross-cultural studies.

BRUNEL UNIVERSITY | Uxbridge, United Kingdom

About the course

The Anthropology of Childhood, Youth and Education MSc was the first degree of its kind in the world when it was established and is still unique in its thoroughgoing anthropological perspective on what it is to be a child or to be young.

Its key organising principle is that understanding children requires the study of how their relations with others - peers, older and younger children, parents, teachers and other adults - inform their practices, identities and world views.

This course addresses the following issues from an anthropological perspective:

  • Do children of ‘different cultures’ live ‘different worlds’?
  • How does education impact upon children’s worlds and upon social and cultural practices more broadly?
  • How do everyday processes of learning – both formal and informal - help to shape children’s ideas of and engagement with society at large?
  • What is the role of schools in the transmission and acquisition of cultural values to children and youth?
  • And why are adults’ ideas about childhood and youth so important for what children learn and aspire to become?

The distinctiveness of this degree derives from an anthropological approach that focuses on the importance of children’s and youth’s perspectives, and on the role that education (formal and informal) plays in children’s learning processes and in the transmission and acquisition of cultural knowledge.

Anthropology at Brunel is well-known for its focus on ethnographic fieldwork: as well as undertaking rigorous intellectual training, all our students are expected to get out of the library and undertake their own, original research – whether in the UK or overseas – and to present their findings in a dissertation. Students take this opportunity to travel to a wide variety of locations across the world – see “Special Features” for more details.

Attendance for lectures full-time: 2 days per week - for 24 weeks
Attendance for lectures part-time: 1 day per week - for 24 weeks (in each of 2 years)

Aims

  • Through an examination of ethnographic cases from around the world (including the UK), you will learn about the different ways in which childhood and youth are understood and conceptualised.
  • You will explore the different educational forms and processes through which cultural knowledge is transmitted and acquired, and how culture impacts upon these processes.

BRUNEL UNIVERSITY | Uxbridge, United Kingdom

About the course

Over the last ten years, global aspirations to reduce the suffering of the "bottom billion" have led to unprecedented attention on international development. International agencies, governments and NGOs are working more intensely than ever before to deliver appropriate policies and interventions.

Anthropology has played a key role in the emergence of new perspectives on humanitarian assistance and the livelihoods of populations caught up in extreme circumstances such as famines, natural disasters and wars.

On the one hand, this has led to a radical re-thinking of what has been happening, but on the other hand, it has led to anthropologists sometimes playing controversial roles in agendas associated with the "war on terror".

This course examines these contemporary issues and debates, and explores their implications. It also sets them in the context of anthropology as a discipline.

The course will appeal to graduates from a variety of backgrounds, including: anthropology, sociology, economics, politics, geography, law and development studies. It is suited for those interested in critically assessing the policies and practices of international development and humanitarian assistance to war-affected regions from an anthropological perspective.

It will provide the necessary training to enable students to seek employment with NGOs (such as Oxfam and Save the Children Fund), international agencies (such as the World Health Organisation and the World Food Programme) and the civil service (such as the UK Department for International Development).

It will also provide a useful stepping stone for those seeking to undertake doctoral research in international development.

BRUNEL UNIVERSITY | Uxbridge, United Kingdom

About the course

Brunel was the first university in Europe to establish a Master's degree in Medical Anthropology. Since then we have continued to develop our programme to reflect the changing world in which we live.

In short, Medical Anthropology can be described as the study of cultural beliefs and practices associated with the origin, recognition and management of health and illness in different social and cultural groups.

Literally hundreds of students – doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, social workers and other medical professionals among them – can testify to the quality of our programme, having used it either to enhance their professional practice, to change career or to develop their research interests for future studies.

Anthropology at Brunel is well-known for its focus on ethnographic fieldwork: as well as undertaking rigorous intellectual training, all our students are expected to get out of the library and undertake their own, original research – whether in the UK or overseas – and to present their findings in a dissertation. Students take this opportunity to travel to a wide variety of locations across the world – see “Special Features” for more details.

Attendance for lectures full-time: 2 days per week - for 24 weeks
Attendance for lectures part-time: 1 day per week - for 24 weeks (in each of 2 years)

Aims

The degree aims to equip students with a broad, general understanding of anthropology and how it might be applied to medical and health-related problems.

You will develop a deeper understanding of how people’s ideas about the world, as well as the structural constraints within which they find themselves, have an impact on their understanding and experience of health, sickness and disease.

You’ll achieve this through close study of key texts in medical anthropology, the original fieldwork experiences of your lecturers, and through designing and undertaking your own research project.

If you’ve wondered about some or all of the questions below – all of which are addressed in the degree – this could be the course for you:

  • How does poverty contribute to the profiles of diseases such as diabetes and tuberculosis?
  • Why are some diseases, such as leprosy or AIDS/HIV, feared and stigmatized?
  • Why do some biomedical interventions seeking to control infectious and non-infectious diseases work, and others fail?
  • What might stop some patients seeking conventional treatments for cancers and other conditions – even when they are offered for free – despite the apparent efficacy of the medicines available?
  • How does one make the distinction between the healthy and the pathological? Is being ‘disabled’, for example, always a negative state, or might some consider it just another, equally valid, way of being?
  • What are the effects of political, economic and other social conditions on people’s experiences of what, from a biomedical perspective, might be considered the same diseases?
  • How and why is it appropriate to combine insights emerging from clinical and epidemiological research with ethnographic understandings of health, illness and disease?

The Brunel Medical Anthropology MSc addresses these issues and more in a lively and challenging way, through a programme of lectures, class discussions, and your own – personally directed – final dissertation research project
