Social Anthropology is an academic discipline that in many respects straddles the social sciences and humanities. It both draws from and contributes to such disciplines as philosophy, linguistics and literature, as well as sociology and history.

The full title of the department of Anthropology and Sociology emphasises the range of our concern with Third World studies, from more remote communities to more recent urban development, avoiding any arbitrary distinction that may be implied by reference to either anthropology or sociology alone.

The BA Social Anthropology teaches the methods of social anthropological investigation, emphasising the detailed study of multiple, interwoven areas of social life, through long participation and linguistic familiarity. Students have a great deal of scope to tailor their programme of study according to their own interests.

¿Qué objetivos tiene esta formación?

Students who study Social Anthropology develop a wide range of transferable skills such as research, analysis, oral and written communication skills.

The communication skills of anthropologists transfer well to areas such as information and technology, the media and tourism. Other recent SOAS career choices have included commerce and banking, government service, the police and prison service, social services and health service administration. Opportunities for graduates with trained awareness of the socio cultural norms of minority communities also arise in education, local government, libraries and museums.

Choosing to study a joint degree programme will increase the breadth of your knowledge, and will develop additional skills with which to further your studies of the Social Anthropology, or to make comparative study with other areas. Social Anthropology may be combined with a huge range of other disciplines. For more information on the extra skills you will gain from your second subject, please see the relevant departmental page.

Requisitos: Mature students may be considered on the basis of alternative qualifications and experience. We do not require applicants to have particular disciplinary backgrounds.

Two subject degree students must take a minimum of 5 units in Anthropology. Students take core modules which are designed to build up a knowledge of the history of the discipline and relevant theoretical, methodological and empirical aspects. They can choose from a range of optional modules. Year 1: Two subject degree students take 2 introductory units and 2 units from their other subjects. Introduction to social anthropology (1 unit) Social Theory (1 unit) 2 units from other subject Year 2: Combined degree students do 2 compulsory units and 2 units from their other subject.
