Undergraduate Study: Social Anthropology


Social anthropology studies cultural diversity, the often radically different ways in which people around the world organise their lives and deal with such universal human issues as sex and marriage, family, work and play, religion and death, local and global forms of power, domination and resistance. Its primary aim is to make sense of apparently strange and exotic belief systems and practices and to show that far from being inferior, they constitute different expressions of a common humanity.
