By studying Anthropology alongside Sociology, you can fully explore how relevant the discipline is for the study of our globalised world. Sociology aims to provide a critical understanding of society by examining a wide range of social activities from intimate personal relations to the apparently faceless operation of state bureaucracies. You will examine social, political, historical, cultural and economic issues and social groups such as families, companies, churches, crowds and political parties. Our Sociology modules cover diverse subjects including sport, music, media, cyborg studies and technology. Anthropology’s comparative outlook and concern with cultural difference complements sociologists’ interest in the formation of social groups and the role of shared understanding in coordinating the actions of their members. Anthropology traditionally focused on the study of small-scale and pre-industrial societies but increasingly it has applied its distinctive insights to the problems of modern living. Anthropologists today are as interested in the practices of multinational companies and the impact of natural resource exploitation on local communities as in the rituals and ceremonies of native Amazonians. Studying Anthropology with Sociology will equip you with a full range of critical analytical perspectives as well as research methods to start your own exploration of the nature and complexity of human social life. You’ll study core modules from both disciplines, and be able to choose from an excitingly diverse array of optional modules in your second and final years as well as undertaking a dissertation focused on either discipline. You will spend the 3rd year of your studies in a partner University on an Erasmus/Socrates exchange or other approved programme of study.
