This course may also suit you if you’re keen to enhance your career through the acquisition of advanced knowledge and research skills in anthropology, or if you haven’t studied anthropology before, but have a stronger interest developing your own research.
A unique feature of this programme is the opportunity to design, in collaboration with academic staff, a set of guided modules from the suite of anthropology taught subjects, to suit your particular research interests in social anthropology.
The Social Anthropology programme from Brunel University London marries the best aspects of the traditional apprenticeship system of anthropology, where you will work with a leading anthropologist in their geographical area of interest.
Brunel student projects in anthropology have been or are currently funded by a number of funding sources including the British Council, the Economic and Social Research Council, the Commonwealth Scholarship Scheme, the World Health Organization, national and local governments as well as NGOs.
