Students develop an advanced knowledge and understanding of topics in one of the sub-disciplines of anthropology (biological, social, medical or material culture).
They are prepared for advanced level research through a general training in social science research methods and specialised research training in broad-based anthropological research methods and techniques.
With the completion of the Anthropology MResoffered at the University College London (UCL), we expect students to be highly competent professionals, who will either continue to the MPhil/PhD level or who will be well equipped to apply their knowledge of social science methodologies and methods and their specific anthropological expertise in a range of settings.
The MRes enhances the profile of students who already have a strong background in anthropology by training them in professional skills, statistics and various other social science methods.
Exposure to positivist social science methodologies makes graduates attractive candidates for positions in NGOs or work in applied social science. Emphasis on research design and data collection through field research prepares graduates to be independent researchers.
The general social science orientation of the degree qualifies students to apply for research positions on grants in various disciplines, and it opens the way to doctoral study in anthropology and other social science subjects.
