Course content

The MSc Social Anthropology is an excellent and intensive introduction to the discipline of social anthropology. The programme gives you a thorough grounding in anthropology, both in terms of its ethnographic diversity and its theoretical development.

Teaching is directly informed and enhanced by the strong tradition of fieldwork-based research within the Department. Compulsory components include a course in Anthropology, which examines the relationship between theory and ethnography in modern social and cultural anthropology, and a 10,000-word dissertation on an approved topic of your choice.

This programme is suitable for graduates with a degree in any discipline, and prior knowledge of anthropology, while beneficial, is not essential. It is suitable either as an introduction to the subject for those intending to proceed with other careers, or is an ideal preparation for further research work in anthropology and related disciplines.
