Social Anthropology

Choose to study social anthropology and it could change the way you think about the world. Societies across the globe vary enormously socially, culturally and politically. The study of these variations and the common humanity that underlies them is at the heart of social anthropology. 

Joining one of the UK's leading centres for the study of anthropology, you'll draw upon the expertise of researchers who are international leaders in their field. Under their tutelage you'll develop a broad knowledge of the major fields of social and cultural anthropology, you'll explore social and cultural contexts, institutions, processes and ideas and you'll develop your own practical research skills by taking the opportunity to spend up to four months on an individual research project either within the UK or abroad.

This degree is ideally suited for those who would like to work in roles that are international or cross-cultural in scope or which are underpinned by social values. Such roles might include social development, healthcare, teaching or media amongst others.
