This programme offers an intensive introduction to contemporary social anthropology.
We provide a programme of study that will enable you to engage reflexively with the particularities of your own cultural and social context as well as with the possibilities inherent in cross-cultural comparison.
Working within a rich and active research culture, we shall explore the distinctive nature of social anthropology and its contribution to a critical and informed understanding of the contemporary world - a world reflected in the diversity of our research and teaching interests.
Courses range from those offering an overview of anthropological theory to those examining specific issues such as kinship, gender, development and religion.
