Course summary

Social Anthropology seeks to understand what it is to be human across the world, studying societies across space and time in order to grasp their cultural similarities and differences. By doing this, it opens windows onto worlds different from your own, and also provides mirrors for reflection about your own cultural world. Queen's has one of the most successful Social Anthropology units in the UK and Ireland. Besides its wide reputation for research in communities, its staff have first-hand specialist knowledge of people across the world, and share their research on contemporary issues in their teaching. Social Anthropology at Queen’s has consistently obtained excellent gradings in the UK Research Assessment Exercises, and has been commended by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education for the teaching and learning opportunities it provides for its students.
