Description

The BA in Social Anthropology is a distinctive degree programme allowing for the holistic study of people’s ideas, beliefs, practices and activities in a wide range of local, global, diasporic and transnational settings. Social anthropologists study how and why we do the things we do, for example, how we work, use technologies, and negotiate conflicts, relationships and change.

As a research-led School we offer a wide range of modules, with a particular strength being the opportunity to study visual anthropology, with both theoretical and practical classes. The programme reflects staff research interests across the globe, which include: political struggle and resistance, post-conflict reconstruction, cultural transmission, indigenous knowledge, religious identity and transformation, mental illness, environmental politics, rural social transformation, law and legal pluralism, science and technology, public anthropology and advocacy. We explore communities and the systems and processes that link them together such as globalisation, migration, the media, businesses, financial markets and world politics. A further special feature of our programme is the application of computers and IT to anthropological research and practice.

Anthropology is a friendly and cosmopolitan School where you are taught by leading authorities in their fields. Our Centre for Social Anthropology and Computing (CSAC) was one of the first in the country and our Centre for Biocultural Diversity (CBCD) is equally outstanding. Our degrees also offer the chance to study in Europe or Japan.
