Course summary

Overview

Social Anthropology:

Our MA Social Anthropology and Intensive Language programme is designed on a modular basis offering different pathways to suit three categories of students:

  • students with a degree in social anthropology wishing to pursue more specialist topics and/or more regional and language-based study
  • students with little or no previous knowledge of social anthropology wishing to acquire a broad knowledge of the discipline
  • students with little or no previous knowledge of social anthropology wishing to take the degree as a conversion course before proceeding to a research degree in anthropology.

Intensive Language (Chinese):

This module is a core component of the two-year programmes with Intensive Language (Chinese). Classes are taught in Chinese by academic staff at a university in China over a period of six weeks during the summer (July/August). Assessment is conducted at SOAS upon return. The intensive classroom environment and immersion experience of living and studying in China is designed to facilitate the student’s ability to build fluency within the appropriate daily social and cultural contexts.

Employment

Students from SOAS Department of Anthropology and Sociology develop an in-depth understanding of the world. Employers value our graduates’ cultural awareness and global perspective, as well as their skills in analysis, data interpretation and problem-solving.
