The Social Anthropology MRes is a taught postgraduate degree that will equip you with high quality training in anthropology and anthropological research, particularly if you are considering PhD study.
This course may also suit you if you’re keen to enhance your career through the acquisition of advanced knowledge and research skills in anthropology, or if you haven’t studied anthropology before, but have a stronger interest developing your own research.
A unique feature of this programme is the opportunity to design, in collaboration with academic staff, a set of guided modules from the suite of anthropology taught subjects, to suit your particular research interests in social anthropology.
The MRes programme at Brunel marries the best aspects of the traditional apprenticeship system of anthropology, where you will work with a leading anthropologist in their geographical area of interest.
Brunel student projects in anthropology have been or are currently funded by a number of funding sources including the British Council, the Economic and Social Research Council, the Commonwealth Scholarship Scheme, the World Health Organization, national and local governments as well as NGOs.
A 30 month part-time option of the course is also available. If you wish to be considered for the part-time 30 month version, please make your application for the 24 month part-time route and then contact the Admissions team to request the change to the 30 month duration.
