University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD)
Our Engaged Anthropology programmes are designed to develop your capacity to take anthropology out of the classroom into real-life contexts - and equip you with the vocational skills to do so - while also encouraging you to take a critical approach to anthropological engagement, intervention and involvement in current social concerns and debates.
The programme is our main advanced Social Anthropology offering, and the title 'Engaged Anthropology' reflects our unique approach to the discipline.
At UWTSD we encourage students to be anthropologists, apply their learning and engage with pressing issues - such as climate change, food security, globalisation and the preservation of the past - which people across the world are facing today.
As such, theory and practice are woven together as students reflect upon political and economic relations and broader power dynamics, both historically and in the contemporary world, and consider how individual and collective actions can challenge, create and/or reinforce social inequalities and injustices.
The programme is designed to encourage students to develop ethically sophisticated and sustainable approaches to social action, while also considering what sustainability - in relation to economic systems, cultural practices, community, knowledge, relations with the environment and the discipline of anthropology - and ethical practice means in cross-cultural settings.
The programme is shaped by students' interests and currently offers three specialist pathways in Food Cultures and Practices; Heritage and Material Culture; and Human - Environment Relations.
We also offer this programme as a Postgraduate Certificate (students complete 60 taught credits) and a Postgraduate Diploma (students complete 120 taught credits)
