Most direct entrants to the MRes or MPhil already have a first degree or an MA in Social Anthropology. If you don't have this, you should normally do an MA, or you may be able to take a qualifying year conversion course.
Months of entry
The Department of Anthropology offers supervision in a wide range of areas at MPhil and PhD level.
The MPhil/PhD Visual Anthropology can be achieved through two main strands:
- research projects that centre on the study of visual cultures, such as various forms of media representation or art
- the use of specific visual methodologies as a central feature of the research project itself
The programme focuses on the visual as a vital and defining factor in the research project as a whole.
Additional practical training can be provided, alongside some access to department audio-visual equipment and facilities, but we generally expect MPhil/PhD candidates to have an appropriate level of practical visual production skills and to be largely self-sufficient in this area.
MPhil/PhD students are currently carrying out visual projects in Mexico, India, Argentina, Lebanon, Israel, and the UK.
