Course content

The MRes Visual Anthropology offers advanced-level training to students who normally already have an undergraduate or MA degree in Anthropology.

You will gain a wide range of generic training in social science research methods, and in-depth training in anthropological methods and research issues.

The programme also aims to develop understanding of visual theory and practice in order to carry out visual-based research.

The MRes is designed to serve either 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, visual practice, qualitative research methods, and a dissertation, which together prepare you for undertaking doctoral research in visual anthropology.
