Applied Anthropology and Community Development
You should have an undergraduate degree of at least second class standard in the social sciences or another appropriate subject, with some experience of community and youth work. You should have at least four months of full-time, or part-time equivalent, work experience prior to starting the MA. We also offer the MA in Applied Anthropology & Community and Youth Work (professionally validated by the National Youth Agency) for applicants with more work experience. Experience can include paid or unpaid work; voluntary, community and youth work in organisations; and relevant informal work. You might also be considered for some programmes if you aren't a graduate or your degree is in an unrelated field, but have relevant experience and can show that you have the ability to work at postgraduate level. If we make you an offer to study on this programme, we will ask you to complete an application for an Enhanced Disclosure Certificate from the DBS and meet the Fitness to train criteria.
The Department of Anthropology teaches two of the core components of your degree: Contemporary Social Issues and Anthropological Research Methods. The Department of Social, Therapeutic and Community Studies runs the fieldwork placements modules, which are supported by seminars, lectures, workshops and tutorials. This MA pathway entails five days attached to Anthropological Research Methods module; five days observations and 40 days of placements, consisting of two placements of 20 days each. The accompanying teaching is divided into three modules; Fieldwork I: Perspectives and Approaches (first 10 days of 20-day placement), Fieldwork 2: Critical Practice (second 10 days of 20-day placement), Fieldwork 3: Management, Enterprise and Development (20-day placement plus five-day observation).
Essay, take-home exam, All three fieldwork modules are assessed by a fieldwork report written by the student and a report by the placement supervisor. The dissertation presents the culmination of your work, in that it is here that you apply anthropological methods and theories to a specific issue relevant to community development that you are interested in. It is taught jointly by both departments.
