London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE)

Course Introduction

The programme will help you to develop a good understanding of classical social theory and modern anthropological theory, with reference to a range of theoretical issues, including those of development and social change, and in relation to appropriate ethnography. You will gain a thorough understanding of the history of development policy and practice and their theoretical underpinnings, and of the ways in which these are illuminated by anthropology. Though the programme is not a course in applied anthropology, it will be invaluable if you are planning a career in development work. The programme also provides a good foundation for anthropological research on problems connected with development.
