Course summary

Discover what binds and divides us, explore identity, class, cultural difference and social change, and examine how we experience it all in our daily lives! Taught by expert sociologists, social anthropologists and biological anthropologists, you will explore sociological and anthropological perspectives on important contemporary issues, such as globalisation, post-conflict interventions, migration, terrorism and protection. All of these with a special emphasis on applying theory to local and international policy and practice. 90% of our final year students on this course agreed that staff were good at explaining things and made the subject interesting (National Student Survey, 2019).What makes it especially interesting is the integrated 30-week or 20-day work placement, which you can complete anywhere in the world, in your second or third year. This can boost your employability by developing professional skills and establishing crucial networks.
