Course summary

The MRes in Anthropology, Art and Perception provides training for postgraduate research into the anthropology of human creativity, art, material culture and visual expression. It takes perception as its starting point and draws on themes extending across the subject boundaries between art and anthropology.

Course information

The MRes in Anthropology, Art and Perception is led by the Department of Social Anthropology within the School of Philosophical, Anthropological and Film Studies.

Highlights

  • Students will explore new ways of thinking anthropologically and gain access to cutting-edge research tools for future research, including practical 'learning labs' with invited experts and a field visit.
  • The course benefits from small class sizes and an interdisciplinary approach.
  • Students have the option to write a library based dissertation or a dissertation with a practical component.

Research degrees

In addition to the MRes, the School offers a two-year Master of Philosophy (MPhil) in Anthropology, Art and Perception degree option. Students with an advanced background in Social Anthropology may be permitted to enrol directly into the second year of the MPhil and receive the degree solely from the 40,000-word thesis.

Many of our graduates continue their education by enrolling in PhD programmes at St Andrews or elsewhere. The department of Social Anthropology offers PhD supervision across a diverse range of theoretical interests and topics.

Careers

If students choose not to complete the dissertation requirement for the MRes, there is an exit award available that allows suitably qualified candidates to receive a Postgraduate Diploma. By choosing an exit award, you will finish your degree at the end of the second semester of study and receive a PGDip instead of an MRes.

Social Anthropology graduates have characteristics many employers seek, and a Social Anthropology degree provides openings to a wide range of careers. Our graduates have gained successful employment in areas such as:

  • teaching
  • design
  • wildlife conservation
  • museums
  • international policy and non-governmental organisations (NGOs)
  • journalism (BBC and The Independent)
  • marketing.
