We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Anthropology explore the development of humans and their societies. This discipline uses a diverse range of methodologies to address core questions about what it means – and has meant – to be human.
Social and Cultural Anthropology focuses on the functioning of societies, languages and customs in different cultural and historical contexts. Physical and Biological Anthropology is more concerned with the development of the human species.
Programmes may be taught or research-based (with the opportunity to carry out interesting independent fieldwork). MA, MSc, MRes and MPhil degrees are available, depending on the content and focus of a given course.
As courses which ask - and answer - fundamental questions about human identity and behaviour, these programmes have a wide range of career applications. Your experience and understanding will be valuable in any profession which benefits from an understanding of people, their needs and their experiences.
Potential career paths include everything from town planning and community development to international politics and diplomacy; from education to corporate training and development.
You'll also develop an impressive suite of transferable skills, able to undertake both qualitative and quantitative analysis and to present your findings sensitively and persuasively.
