This advanced course in Social Anthropology provides an interdisciplinary approach with a focus on European cultures and societies.

This programme is designed for students who have already studied anthropology either as a degree course or as part of a degree course at undergraduate level. It provides in-depth generalist training in anthropology with an ethnographic concentration on Europe and is excellent preparation for those embarking on research degrees in anthropology. The programme will also prepare students for professional fields in which anthropological training is advantageous, as they gain the ability to understand changes taking place in Europe in the post-Brexit era from an anthropological perspective.

Staff involved in the programme are currently conducting research, which informs our teaching, on timely issues including austerity, war and conflict, migration, identity politics, religion and creative expression.
