This programme is offered by the Department of Anthropology with the assistance of the Department of International Development and offers the following benefits:
Both the Department of Anthropology and the Department of International Development have a strongly international character, and are situated in the only institution devoted solely to the social sciences in the UK.
The strong tradition of empirical research within both departments directly informs and enhances the teaching on the programme.
The programme offers an excellent and intensive introduction to the disciplines of social anthropology and international development.
The programme is intended for graduates with a good first degree in any discipline who can demonstrate a genuine interest in anthropology and development.
The programme will help you to develop a good understanding of classical social theory and modern anthropological theory, with reference to a range of theoretical issues, including those of development and social change, and in relation to appropriate ethnography. You will gain a thorough understanding of the history of development policy and practice and their theoretical underpinnings, and of the ways in which these are illuminated by anthropology. Though the programme is not a course in 'applied anthropology', it will be invaluable if you are planning a career in development work. The programme also provides a good foundation for anthropological research on problems connected with development.
Scheduled teaching normally includes three hours of lectures and three hours of seminars per week (depending on options selected), supplemented by regular academic tutorials.
You take compulsory core courses to the value of two units, one each in anthropology and in international development. You take further courses to the value of one full unit, and complete a dissertation to be submitted by early September.
