Course summary

The BSc Social Anthroplogy programme is designed for imaginative, critical thinkers who are passionate about understanding why the world is as it is – and about using the insights anthropology provides to make it better. You will explore the incredible diversity of human experience, and consider what is universal to human societies and what is variable. You will examine how different political, legal, and economic systems influence people’s beliefs, values and practices, and you will interrogate the very categories we use to describe the world with, such as gender, religion, race.

In addition, you will explore how anthropological insights can be applied to make a difference: to see how legal systems could be made more just; how public health campaigns could be improved; and how development interventions could be made more effective.

The programme offers full training in anthropological research methods. In addition to undertaking an in-depth ethnographic study during your second year, you will have the opportunity to take part in the Summer Fieldwork Projects scheme. You will also have the opportunity to spend a year abroad at one of the Anthropology Department's global partners.

Students on this programme also have the opportunity to receive a language specialism attached to their degree certificate and transcript - see the programme structure and courses section.
