Course summary

Overview

The Social Anthropology MRes is a taught postgraduate degree that will equip you with high quality training in anthropology and anthropological research, particularly if you are considering PhD study.

This course may also suit you if you’re keen to enhance your career through the acquisition of advanced knowledge and research skills in anthropology, or if you haven’t studied anthropology before, but have a stronger interest developing your own research.

A unique feature of this programme is the opportunity to design, in collaboration with academic staff, a set of guided modules from the suite of anthropology taught subjects, to suit your particular research interests in social anthropology.

The MRes programme at Brunel marries the best aspects of the traditional apprenticeship system of anthropology, where you will work with a leading anthropologist in their geographical area of interest.

Careers and your future

The MRes is specifically designed for those considering doctoral or PhD study in anthropology, as well as a stand-alone qualification. The broad range of research strategies taught also makes it an excellent basis for professional development and research in other areas of social science.
