Course Introduction

This programme will prepare you for further postgraduate study in social anthropology and development studies. It introduces you to anthropological methods and perspectives, and will equip you with the conceptual, theoretical and intellectual skills to produce high'quality written work from an anthropological perspective. These skills will be developed as you explore the key debates and issues in the anthropology of development and tourism, and in the anthropology of space, architecture and landscape.

Course Modules

Modules include: Anthropology of space, architecture and the landscape (Level 6); anthropology, development and tourism. Students achieving 60 per cent in both modules will be eligible for the MSc Development Studies and Social Anthropology and MSc Development Studies.

Course Additional Entry

Ideally you will have a 2.2 degree, although other qualifications, professional training and experience will also be considered. Applicants may be asked to submit an entry'level assignment prior to being offered a place. If English is not your first language or you have not previously studied in English, our usual requirement is the equivalent of an International English Language Testing System (IELTS Academic Test) score of 6.5, with not less than 6.0 in each of the sub'tests.
