Social Anthropology

This programme will prepare you for further postgraduate study in social anthropology and development studies. It introduces you to anthropological methods and perspectives, and will equip you with the conceptual, theoretical and intellectual skills to produce high-quality written work from an anthropological perspective. These skills will be developed as you explore the key debates and issues in the anthropology of development and tourism, and in the anthropology of space, architecture and landscape.

Entry requirements

Ideally you will have a 2.2 degree, although other qualifications, professional training and experience will also be considered. Applicants may be asked to submit an entry-level assignment prior to being offered a place. If English is not your first language or you have not previously studied in English, our usual requirement is the equivalent of an International English Language Testing System (IELTS Academic Test) score of 6.5, with not less than 6.0 in each of the sub-tests.
