About

The Anthropology programme at Queen's University Belfast has been designed to provide students with a general knowledge of the principles and methods of Anthropology.

Overview

What is Anthropology? Anthropology is the study of human similarity and human difference, it looks at the building blocks of human society and culture, studying the value and meaning of human life from the grassroots up on a local and global platform.

Ethnomusicology (study of world music) can be studies as part of Anthropology. Queen’s has a dedicated Performance Room with musical instruments from around the world.

Anthropology Highlights

Anthropology is ranked 3rd in the UK (Guardian University Guide 2018) and 1st in relation to research intensity (Research Excellence Framework 2014). With 92% for overall satisfaction! Resulting in it being 4th in the Russell Group

Career Development

The Anthropology programme at Queen's University Belfast enables students to both deepen their general anthropological knowledge, specialise through one of our MA strands, and develop their own research project.

Graduates have pursued careers in a wide range of fields, such as research (academic and non-academic), teaching, music therapy, consultancy, development and charity work, museum and heritage posts, journalism and radio broadcasting. Among those who have pursued academic careers, not all have done so within anthropology - several have taken posts in related disciplines. Others have found positions within governmental and non-governmental organisations abroad.
