Course Description


This course is designed for students who have a curiosity about the wider world and how humans diversely experience living and being in that world. Anthropology focuses on the links between global and local processes, between abstract theory and real behaviour, equipping students with sophistication in social theory and practical engagement with people in their lived contexts.
