Course summary

Kent-anthropology is renown for its dynamic post-graduate community and its contribution to emerging and established anthropological fields. Our regional expertise and breadth of thematic interests enables us to offer supervision across a wide range of topics within the fields socio-cultural, biological, and visual anthropology. PhD Socio-cultural or Biological Anthropology research The PhD is a three-year full-time and five-year part-time programme. You research and write a thesis of a maximum of 100,000 words under the supervision of an academic team. Students participate in the vibrant seminar-culture of the School and have opportunities to meet and interact with researchers who lead major anthropological fields. The first year includes training in research methodology and, in the case of socio-cultural anthropology, in the art of writing ethnography. The remaining years involve field or library research and writing up. In general, you work closely with two supervisors throughout your research, although you have a committee of three (including your primary supervisor) overseeing your progress. MA by Research Socio-cultural research This programme is one-year full time or two-year part-time. You research and write a thesis under the supervision of one or two academic staff.
