Introduction

Mode of Attendance: Full-time or part-time


Our MA Social Anthropology programme is designed on a modular basis offering different pathways to suit three categories of students:

  • Students with a degree in social anthropology wishing to pursue more specialist topics and/or more regional and language-based study;
  • Students with little or no previous knowledge of social anthropology wishing to acquire a broad knowledge of the discipline;
  • Students with little or no previous knowledge of social anthropology wishing to take the degree as a conversion course before proceeding to a research degree in anthropology.

This two-year intensive language pathway is directed at students who wish to combine knowledge of the anthropology of development, with expertise in a regional language. It prepares students to apply their anthropological knowledge in a developing country context by achieving proficiency in a language.
