Course content

This programme offers advanced-level training to students who normally already have an undergraduate or MA degree in Anthropology.

Close supervision enables you to focus on your own research and helps tailor the generic training to the individual proposal being developed.

The MRes provides you with a wide range of generic training in social science research methods, and in-depth training in anthropological methods and research issues. It is designed to serve as the first (training) year of a research degree (MPhil/PhD) for those starting MPhil/PhD studies at Goldsmiths, although it can also be taken as a stand-alone programme.

The programme includes research design; research methods (quantitative and qualitative); optional language training, and a dissertation, which prepares the ground for fieldwork or other data-gathering. The dissertation includes a detailed account of your proposed research, and analysis of relevant theoretical and regional literature.

Fees and funding

There is a fee waiver offered for this programme for new students starting in September 2018.
