The Social Anthropology is an excellent and intensive introduction to the discipline of social anthropology. The Social Anthropology programme from London School of Economics and Political Science gives you a thorough grounding in anthropology, both in terms of its ethnographic diversity and its theoretical development.

Overview

Overview

Teaching is directly informed and enhanced by the strong tradition of fieldwork-based research within the Department. Compulsory components include a course which examines the relationship between theory and ethnography in modern social and cultural anthropology, and a 10,000-word dissertation on an approved topic of your choice.
