Anthropology

A PhD or Doctor of Philosophy is a postgraduate academic degree awarded by universities. Once one attains a PhD he or she may often be referred to as a doctor.

In pursuit for understanding of the development, culture and cognition, urban, and work related social issues, one may consider taking a PhD in Anthropology. The historical and traditional issues of a society will be made clear to you as you gain more training and skills. It is an internationally recognized program availed at many universities worldwide.

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.

PhD Research Degrees in Anthropology & Sociology

SOAS University of London
Campus Full time Part time 3 - 6 years September 2017 United Kingdom London + 1 more

Social anthropology is widely regarded by employers as an excellent training, equipping holders of the degree with a range of employable skills. The value and relevance of the discipline are evidenced by the great variety and distinction of careers SOAS anthropology graduates have embarked upon with success. [+]

Research Degrees in Anthropology & Sociology In the first year, every MPhil student is appointed a three-person research committee comprising a principal supervisor, a second supervisor and the Research Tutor. MPhil students attend the weekly Research Training Seminar and the Research Methods course, and they take relevant language training. MPhil students may also be required to take additional regional, thematic or theory courses related to their chosen specialisation. Upon successful completion of a 20,000-word research report and fieldwork proposal, MPhil students are upgraded to PhD status and commence fieldwork. The fieldwork experience forms the basis of a 100,000-word dissertation which should demonstrate original thinking and make a significant contribution to the discipline. During the post-fieldwork period, PhD students attend the weekly post-fieldwork seminar and have the opportunity to present their work in progress. MPhil and PhD students are encouraged to attend the variety of seminars and workshops that take place across the School. Why a PhD in Anthropology Social anthropology is widely regarded by employers as an excellent training, equipping holders of the degree with a range of employable skills. The value and relevance of the discipline are evidenced by the great variety and distinction of careers SOAS anthropology graduates have embarked upon with success. Anthropologists have a global perspective when they come to make career choices. The speed and ease of worldwide communication networks is expanding the need to understand and interpret the socio-cultural patterns, values and life styles of others. Social anthropologists therefore find opportunity in diverse fields including international business, information technology, the media, library and museum services, and tourism. The multi-cultural nature of modern society has triggered a need in many spheres for staff with a trained awareness of the socio-cultural norms of minority communities, and our graduates may be found throughout the education sector, health sector, local government, and in advisory services of many kinds. Increasing numbers work in the field of development at home or overseas, with UN agencies or non governmental organizations, and others work as freelance consultants. The SOAS PhD in Social Anthropology is recognized by the ESRC as both a +3 and 1+3 course. (See the links to the ESRC and MA Anthropology Research Methods) [-]

PhD in Social Sciences and Humanities (full-time or dual degree)

The Graduate School for Social Research (GSSR) at the Institute of Philosophy and Sociology of the Polish Academy of Sciences
Campus Full time 4 years October 2017 Poland Warsaw

The PhD programme lasts four years – the maximum period for such a programme normally allowed by Polish law (limited additional time is permitted for students interrupting their studies for the various reasons clearly specified in Ministerial regulations). Full-time or dual degree options are available. [+]

PhD programme (full-time) The PhD programme lasts four years – the maximum period for such a programme normally allowed by Polish law (limited additional time is permitted for students interrupting their studies for the various reasons clearly specified in Ministerial regulations). Students spend only two of their four years as doctoral students attending taught courses, devoting the remaining two years entirely to research. Students conduct studies according to their own choice of courses. Courses of lectures and seminars available in the given academic year are listed in the School Catalogue. Students select courses by completing the declaration / registration form to be submitted to the School Office by the published deadline. From the second year of studies onwards, the selection of courses requires the approval of the student’s thesis supervisor or tutor. With the written agreement of the Dean of the school students may – where necessary for their studies – take courses outside GSSR/CSS. In the first two years of the PhD programme students will be expected to foll>w taught courses. These can be chosen from those taken also by students following the MA programme, or from additional courses offered solely for PhD students. Students may also audit courses (i.e. attend but not for credit). In the third and fourth years of the PhD programme students need not take any courses. However, if they choose to do so in order to maintain a broader range of interests than strictly encompassed by their PhD topic, they may take further courses for credit. In the third and fourth years of the PhD programme students will be expected gain credit points: by publications and/or; by teaching activities and/or; by attending conferences and summer schools and/or; by taking additional courses (see above). Students will also be expected to join a research project to gain additional credit points. Dual PhD studies Building on the very successful collaboration with the Institute for Philosophy and Sociology at the Polish Academy of Science (IFIS PAN), that offers students completing postgraduate programmes in IFiS PAN the possibility of being awarded a Lancaster University MA degree, a Dual PhD Programme has been available since October 2010–. Under this programme of study, a single thesis that has been researched and supervised in both institutions may, after its successful examination in accordance with their regulations, be awarded a doctorate by each. If you wish to Join the Dual PhD programme you should first be accepted to the MA or PhD programmes of the GSSR. During your first year of study at the GSSR you will be assisted to apply for a further three years’ study in the Dual PhD programme. The period of study for the PhD will therefore be four years and will require periods of residence in both Warsaw and Lancaster to work with supervisors from both institutions. Students on this unusual programme will have the opportunity to join in the intellectual life of these two world-class academic institutions and work with scholars of the highest standard. NB: Students on the Dual PhD programme will also pay fees at Lancaster per year for their three years of full-time study, (but at a lower level than full time Lancaster University PhD students). [-]
