Program overview

In your first year, you will be introduced to the core of the discipline, with a focus on social and applied anthropology. You will have the chance to start actually doing your own ethnographic fieldwork, not just reading about it, and learn how to interpret visual and material culture.During your second year, you will develop your anthropological methods and skills through continuing to engage in fieldwork, thinking about the politics and priorities in creating and exhibiting different cultural artefacts, and learning about marginalized communities in early modern Europe. You will have the opportunity to explore a specialist subject area to increase your interdisciplinary understanding and explore potential areas for work or further study.In your final year, you will be able to focus on those areas of anthropology that you have become most interested in. You will produce your own year-long dissertation on any topic of your choice, which you'll work on with the focused support of your personal supervisor.
