About Social & Cultural...
Masters degrees in Social and Cultural Anthropology explore human relationships at the interpersonal level, analysing the organising principles of social life that govern individual behaviour. Issues include kinship, religion, and belief systems. Courses may also explore language systems, traditions, and material creations.
Specialisms related to this subject include Anthropology of Travel and Tourism, Development Anthropology and Psychological Anthropology. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate qualification in a relevant subject such as Sociology, Anthropology or Cultural Studies.
Degrees in this field explore sociological systems at all levels of human interaction, from the family unit to wider social structures. Your course may either be highly academic, or highly vocational, depending on where your interests lie.
Careers for Anthropology postgraduates may include positions in human resource management, political and government agencies, urban planning and health organisations, marketing and market research, international and public relations, as well as roles in non-profit organisations, or social care.
Research at PhD level is highly sought after in this field, as ever-changing policies on the way countries and institutions are governed impacts human social responses. Your Masters could therefore be excellent preparation for further study.
