Course Details

This MA has been designed to provide students with a general and specialist knowledge of the principles and methods of Anthropology.  Anthropology is the study of human similarity and human difference, it looks at the building blocks of human society and culture, studying the value and meaning of human life from the grassroots up on a local and global platform.

The discipline focuses on the study of human similarity and difference and explores athe value and meaning of human life from the grassroots up.  Students can choose to specialise in different strands, including Ethnomusicology (the anthropology of music) and cognition and Culture.  Masters students will be supervised by an individual member of staff and they will conduct research on a topic of their own choice and write a dissertation.

There are five MA strands as listed below and each consists of six taught modules and a dissertation (which is double-weighted):

  • MA Anthropology (Anthropology of Conflict)
  • MA Anthropology (Anthropology of Ireland)
  • MA Anthropology (Cognition and Culture)
  • MA Anthropology (Ethnomusicology)
  • MA Anthropology (Social Anthropology)

 Depending on the specialism chosen, students take a combination of compulsory and optional modules.

You will also participate in the weekly Anthropology Postgraduate Seminar were Diploma/MA/PhD students present their on-going research and in addition attend the weekly Anthropology Research Seminar where established academics discuss their work. Students also have the option to audit an undergraduate module and participate in various music ensembles.

Assessment and Feedback

Learning and Teaching

Teaching times will be a combination of both morning and afternoon with the opportunity for occasional weekend training sessions.

Careers Prospects

Graduates have pursued careers in a wide range of fields, such as research (academic and non-academic), teaching, music therapy, consultancy, development and charity work, museum and heritage posts, journalism and radio broadcasting. Among those who have pursued academic careers, not all have done so within anthropology - several have taken posts in related disciplines. Others have found positions within governmental and non-governmental organisations abroad.

Queen's postgraduates reap exceptional benefits. Unique initiatives, such as Degree Plus and Researcher Plus bolster our commitment to employability, while innovative leadership and executive programmes alongside sterling integration with business experts helps our students gain key leadership positions both nationally and internationally.
