Whether your aim is to explore the possibilities of doctoral research or add anthropological expertise to your existing professional skills, this degree offers an intensive introduction to social anthropology.
We provide a programme of study that will enable you to engage reflexively with the particularities of your own cultural and social context as well as with the possibilities inherent in cross-cultural comparison.
Working within a rich and active research culture, we shall explore the distinctive nature of social anthropology and its contribution to a critical and informed understanding of the contemporary world – a world reflected in the diversity of our students and the wide variety of our research/ teaching interests.
Courses range from those offering an overview of theories and theorists to those examining specific issues such as kinship, gender, development and religion.
The programme will be delivered through lectures, seminars, group work and guided independent study. You will complete four compulsory courses and two optional courses over two semesters, after which you will work towards an independently researched dissertation.
