BA (Hons) Social Anthropology

University of Essex

You combine sociological and anthropological approaches to the study of society, looking at how humans understand their social worlds in different ways. You investigate and analyse a range of social issues, such as the construction of racial and ethnic difference, the different ways people understand their bodies, how people understand sexuality and sexual difference around the world, and the meanings of dreams, myth and magic. We teach in interesting and innovative ways with an exciting choice of modules. Your first year modules include Introduction to Social Anthropology, Researching Social Life, and Sociology and the Modern World. During your second year you take Continuity and Controversy in Sociology, Anthropology: Birth, Sex and Death, and Researching Social Life 2 in which you will further develop your research skills. In your final year you will take Anthropology: Anthropology of Latin America.
