Social Anthropology

This programme is designed as an advanced course in social anthropology and is for students who have already studied anthropology either as a degree course or as part of a degree course at undergraduate level. It provides in-depth generalist training in anthropology and is excellent preparation for those embarking on research degrees in anthropology or intending to enter professional fields in which anthropological training is advantageous. This programme applies computer-based methods to anthropological research at a relatively advanced and creative level, usually requiring computer programming skills and/or a broad understanding of computing at the applications level.

Entry requirements

A 2.1 Honours degree or major part of a degree in anthropology; in certain circumstances, students who have not followed a conventional education path are considered; these cases are assessed individually by the director of graduate studies and the programme co-ordinator. Please also check our website for general entry requirements (including English language requirements).
