In our fast-changing world, humanity and society are facing momentous challenges. Anthropology, as the study of the human condition, focuses on the diversity of the relations between humans and the world. It is in a unique position to help us respond to these changes and challenges. Social Anthropology provides critically useful skills to navigate through the complexities and uncertainties of an increasingly interconnected yet fragmented world.
This advanced programme in social and cultural anthropology provides training in contemporary anthropological theory and methodology focusing on the understanding of the human condition and the challenges it faces today. It is designed to receive students with previous undergraduate training in the humanities or social sciences (such as history, sociology, geography), as well as students from biology, who wish to deepen their knowledge of human sociality. It provides in-depth generalist training in contemporary social anthropology in preparation either for a research degree or for entering professional fields where anthropological knowledge and methods constitute valuable assets.
Anthropology at Kent is shaping the discipline and making a contribution to our contemporary world.
