About the course

Wouldn't it be interesting to study human societies to understand cultural life and social activities? This programme allows you to do just that in an ancient university dating back to 1495.

As a social anthropologist you gain understanding in the cultural life of a wide range of social activities across communities and society. Many alumni have gone to work in a range of top universities in the world and in other organisations including governments and museums, and the programme allows you to take a range of skills with you to these organisations, public sector, third sector and to PhD level where you could lecture, research and publish your own findings.
