You should have an undergraduate degree of at least second class standard in the social sciences or another appropriate subject, with some experience of community and youth work. You should have at least one year of full-time, or part-time equivalent, work experience prior to starting the MA. If you don't have this level of experience, you may be interested in the MA in Applied Anthropology & Community Development pathway.
Experience can include paid or unpaid work; voluntary, community and youth work in organisations; and relevant informal work.
The atmosphere of the anthropology department is friendly and relaxed, and interdisciplinary interaction has helped me to achieve a broader understanding of the field of anthropology in general. The college is a particularly stimulating centre for study, since it reflects the diverse and multicultural nature of London. Also, its closeness to a wide range of important museums, libraries and other cultural establishments and events has greatly enhanced my enjoyment of the course. The teaching and support I have received at Goldsmiths have greatly improved my self-confidence and I feel my time here will leave me with lasting benefits for the future, in terms of both intellectual and personal growth.
