Course content

The MA in Anthropology & Development is a one year taught master’s programme designed for development and humanitarian aid professionals (and those who envisage such a career) who would like to add an anthropological perspective to their development expertise. The course provides a holistic and critical approach to culture, the inevitable context of all relief and development activity.

The MA course is quite intensive and is designed for students with a background in anthropology. Students with no background in anthropology are encouraged to pursue the Postgraduate Certificate in Anthropology & Development.
