About

The MA in Anthropology offered at the University of Bristol will help you to develop a nuanced and cross-cultural perspective on the challenges that humans face in our fast-changing world, with content that reflects our research strengths in adversity, adaptation and globalisation. 

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

You will have the opportunity to put this understanding into practice through academic events and work experience in Bristol’s thriving creative and cultural industries as well as social organisations. In addition to the core themes of the programme – which explore inter-related real-world issues such as sustainability, technology, engagement, arts and materiality - you will receive advanced training in theory and methods delivered through world-class research-led teaching.

The Anthropology programme offered at the University of Bristol  will introduce you to anthropological research design and data analysis using qualitative and mixed methods, including ethnographic and visual methods; survey, interview and focus-group design; participatory approaches and research ethics. There are opportunities for undertaking an off-campus placement with an external partner such as a media-tech company, museum, heritage organisation, NGO or local authority. You can gain first-hand experience of working in a vibrant and diverse industry while putting into practice the skills you have learned throughout the course.

Careers

Anthropologists are in demand in a transforming economy and changing workplaces because we have a deeper understanding of human practices and cultural connections – a perspective hugely important for a sustainable future.
