AREAS OF STUDY

Sussex Anthropology has a reputation for world-leading research and a commitment to studying global issues, including:

  • health, science and the body
  • gender and sexuality
  • human rights, justice and violence
  • politics, power and political movements
  • the global economy, finance and development
  • moral and alternative economies
  • race, ethnicity and indigeneity
  • religion and religious practices
  • environment, natural resources and extractive industries
  • migration, transnationalism and connectivity
  • visual anthropology, culture and media.

For an MPhil, your work is an independent piece of research but in less depth than for a PhD. You’ll graduate with the degree title Master of Philosophy. You might be able to change to a PhD while you study for an MPhil.
