The Department of African Studies and Anthropology offers a distinctive inter-disciplinary learning experience taught by staff from a wide range of academic fields (Anthropology, History, Geography, Politics, Literature, among others). You will benefit from this combination of expertise, which you will apply to the study of Africa and other parts of the world.
For students with an interest in Anthropology we offer a Joint Honours Anthropology programme, focusing on theories developed by Anthropologists working all over the world, giving you opportunities to do anthropological fieldwork of your own, and training you to become acute observers of the societies around you.
