Anthropology at Kent is renowned for its dynamic postgraduate community and its contribution to emerging and established anthropological fields. Our regional expertise and breadth of thematic interests enables us to offer supervision across a wide range of topics within the fields social, biological, and visual anthropology.
This programme is one-year full time or two-year part-time. You research and write a thesis under the supervision of one or two academic staff. We have a vibrant research group whose interests stretch across the range of social anthropology.
We also offer an MSc by Research in Biological Anthropology.
In anthropology we pride ourselves on having a close-knit group of research students who know and can approach any member of staff for help and assistance. We have a varied programme of seminars and symposia for students and staff, given by members of the School and visitors.
There is a special seminar run for research students in which advanced training is provided and students practise presentations and also present chapters of their draft thesis. Research students are encouraged to audit courses from the taught Master’s (eg, in field methods) and sometimes from the undergraduate programmes.
There are also special training courses for research students run by the Graduate School, Information Services and the Unit for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (UELT). The School has an IT officer who can provide assistance and advice on IT matters and a statistics helpdesk is available.
Duration: MA 1 year full-time, 2 years part-time
