Social Anthropology is the study of the relationship between human beings and culture. It gives you a deeper understanding of cultural variation and cultural change, and it allows you to better understand your own culture as one among many possible ways of being human.
Social (or cultural) anthropologists seek to understand cultural differences and the many ways people maintain and change culture in response to new social contexts. Social anthropologists bring a comparative approach to the description and analysis of society based on fieldwork that extends across the globe, from hunter-gatherers to industrial nation-states.
Popular career destinations for Social Anthropology graduates include government policy units, foreign affairs, overseas aid and development agencies, and the tourist industry.
