Program Information

Degrees Offered:

Social and Cultural Anthropology

Format: Campus

Program Description:

What makes anthropology unique is not the subject it studies but the perspective from which it approaches the human condition. In doing so, it focuses on both the differences and the similarities between people across the globe. Today, cultures are regarded as always 'in-between', as giant melting pots of all sorts of influences. The global has adapted to the local and the local has incorporated the global. It is this interaction between cultures - and its economic, social and political implications - that contemporary anthropologists explore. As an anthropologist, you will study issues such as the impact of colonisation, the making and unmaking of identity, the relation between people and their environment and ethnicity. This is an initial Master's programme.
