What will I learn?

Overview

Research may be pursued in or across four main areas, each of which is the focus of separate sections in the department: Biological Anthropology; Material, Visual and Digital Culture; Medical Anthropology; Social and Cultural Anthropology.

Careers

A majority of our MPhil/PhD graduates have taken up lectureships in universities in the UK and abroad, or continue their research interests through fellowships and other research posts. Many now occupy important roles in government departments, in aid and development work, in public policy, and in publishing and the media.

Employability

The MPhil/PhD cultivates advanced skills in qualitative and quantitative methods and expert knowledge of the anthropological issues pertinent to their field of study. Research students collect original data through methodologies that include but are not limited to participant observation, formal and informal interviews, ethnographic recordings, surveys, object and visual analyses, archival research, autoethnography, oral and genealogical histories, excavation, and participatory action research.
