Choosing a degree
If your primary interest is Anthropology, we suggest you apply for the single honours BA Anthropology programme. If you are keen to learn about the theory and conventions of two disciplines you should choose a joint degree; this can be demanding but also very rewarding. For joint degrees, you will be expected to demonstrate some knowledge or experience of the other subject discipline.
Taught Postgraduate programmes
The Department offers six Masters degree programmes in Anthropology. They are all available either full-time over one calendar year (twelve months) or part-time over two calendar years (both modes of study commence in late September). Part-time students normally take the equivalent of two course units in their first year and one course unit plus a dissertation in their second year.
Research Postgraduate programmes
The department offers supervision in a wide range of areas. These programmes may be taken either full-time or part-time. We are happy to consider applications from those who have been away from anthropology for a while, or who are thinking about converting from another discipline.
The Department of Anthropology offers an Erasmus scheme which enables you to live in a European city for part of your degree.
The Department of Anthropology can advise on a variety of work placements to supplement your studies.
