Discover what binds and divides us, explore identity, class, cultural difference and social change, and examine how we experience it all in our daily lives.
Taught by expert sociologists, social anthropologists and biological anthropologists, the degree explores the connections between societies and cultures all over the world, both in the present day and the past. What’s more, each year you’ll boost your academic reach and employee potential by designing and carrying out your own research project on a topic of your choice.
This course will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of key sociological and anthropological areas of debate, such as kinship and family, religion and ritual, politics, power and inequality, gender, race and ethnicity. You will explore sociological and anthropological perspectives on important contemporary issues, such as globalisation, post-conflict interventions, migration, terrorism and protection.
Our Sociology & Anthropology degree is as engaging as it is insightful. With our special emphasis on applying theory to local and international policy and practice, you will develop professional skills in addressing contemporary, real-world challenges.
What makes it especially interesting is the integrated placement opportunities, involving either a 30-week or 20-day work placement, which you can complete anywhere in the world, in your second or third year. This can dramatically boost your employability by developing professional skills and making crucial contacts.
