Goldsmiths, University of London

Course Introduction

Open to international students only, our BA Anthropology (with International Foundation Year) is suitable for you if your academic qualifications do not yet meet our entrance requirements for an undergraduate course. This four'year course includes a foundation year (Year Zero), followed by a further three years of undergraduate study. International students who are admitted to this programme will normally be eligible for a four'year CAS and student visa. This will last the duration of the degree. Our English language and academic skills modules supplement your academic subjects. Anthropology at Goldsmiths offers a fresher approach to the subject than the 'traditional anthropology' taught at other institutions, looking at anthropology from a contemporary perspective, which means that what you learn in the classroom will be relevant in a variety of public domains. This degree introduces you to key issues and problems that have shaped anthropological thought. You'll study human society and culture, and will develop an understanding of the relevance of anthropology for understanding contemporary cultural issues. In years one and two, you concentrate on basic anthropological concepts ' such as kinship, ritual, world systems, and development ' and on methods of studying and analysing these, including the use of video, film, and written texts. You can also study two regions of the world in depth. In your final year(s) you can specialise by choosing a selection of option topics. There's also the opportunity for individual project or dissertation work.
