University of Aberdeen
Students are required to have a very good 1st degree in social anthropology or a closely related discipline. Two academic references are required. Even if you have been educated in the medium of English you must meet our English Language requirements (certain countries may be exempted from this requirement). This programme requires that you meet the 'Postgraduate Standard' level of English proficiency. If you are in doubt about your proficiency in English, contact the British Council office or its equivalent in your country. If your first language is not English, it is important that your proficiency in English is good in order for you to study successfully at the University of Aberdeen. Without this ability you will find great difficulty in understanding lectures, producing written work and sitting examinations.
The programme comprises the following 3 elements: modules that introduce key themes of social anthropology as practiced in the Department; modules that provide training in developing your own project in social anthropology. A Dissertation of around 12,000 words on an agreed topic. Students may also take option courses from a wide variety of choices to supplement their core programme.
Assessment is based on extended essays for each individual course module, and the dissertation.
