Course content

If you are interested in anthropological research this programme will challenge you. You use a variety of research material (e.g. archival, visual, and museological) with training in ethnographic fieldwork research methods (e.g. participant observation, interviewing, recording).

After completion you can study a PhD in Social Anthropology, or become a trained researcher in the public or private sectors. We offer supervision in most areas of the discipline and we have particular strengths in our four principal research themes: Anthropology of the North, Environment and Perception, Creativity and Knowledge, and Religion, Belief and Practice.
