Course summary

Social anthropology is the study of human conduct and thought. Societies around the world vary enormously socially, culturally and politically. The study of these variations, and the common humanity that underlies them, is at the heart of social anthropology. There are close links between social anthropology and sociology, human geography, development studies, history, archaeology, and philosophy. You will take a broad range of courses in years 1 and 2 and will have the opportunity to specialise in years 3 and 4. You will spend up to four months on an individual research project that will form the basis of your dissertation. Fieldwork for your project can be done both within and outside the UK.
