Course summary

Anthropology is the study of human cultures and societies in a changing world.

At Sussex, we emphasise:

  • teaching and research on real-world problems at a human scale
  • an empathic understanding of diverse values, beliefs, and ways of life
  • a complex analysis of how politics, economy, culture, and environment shape everyday lives.

Located within the School of Global Studies, which has a strong tradition of socially and politically engaged anthropology focusing on real-world issues. This MA is for you if you want to deepen your knowledge of anthropology – but it also offers professional training if you’re new to the field.

Anthropology is applicable in everyday life and a growing number of professional contexts, from NGOs to large companies, hospitals and educational institutions.

CAREERS
