The course can be taken as a freestanding qualification or as a route to the PhD. It is a demanding course that enables students to reach a high level of specialist knowledge in social anthropology within a short time and, subject to performance, equips them to undertake a research degree. Problems in anthropological theory, interpretation, comparison and analysis are addressed in relation to particular ethnographies and substantive debates in the anthropological literature. Through critical reflection on a range of anthropological theories, and through practice in the application of those theories to bodies of ethnographic data, students acquire a thorough and intensive grounding in a range of styles of social anthropological analysis.
