PhD Research Degrees in Anthropology & Sociology

SOAS University of London
Campus Part time 3 - 6 years September 2017 United Kingdom London

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) [-]

American Studies dates back to 1973 at the University of Kent. Since that time, we have built up an impressive range of materials at the University’s Templeman Library and forged strong research links with American research institutions and regional archives, especially in the US West. We offer an attractive postgraduate research bursary, in the form of the The Christine and Ian Bolt Scholarship that covers one year’s stay in the United States at costs up to £10,000. As one of the few UK institutions where staff actively research both traditional topics (such as slavery) and emerging fields of dominance (such as environmental problems and Native American writing), we offer an extremely good base for postgraduate study. Our work here is cutting edge and treats the American experience in a critical and reflective manner, with a welcome wide scope that includes Canada, Mexico and Central/South America. Staff interests broadly fit within the parameters of US literature, film, history, and politics, and Latin American studies. Our breadth of coverage is truly impressive, with staff working on visual culture, immigration literature and politics, the Cuban Revolution, military culture in Peru and Bolivia, hunting cultures in the American West, and Native American literature today. We actively welcome interdisciplinary projects that probe several areas of study. We also have three active research clusters: (1) The American West (2) The Study of US Environmental Issues (3) The Study of Race, Ethnicity and Borders. Centre facilities American Studies benefits from excellent library resources, and is especially strong in US literature and history. Specialist collections include slavery and anti-slavery, a large collection of works on photography and contemporary visual communications, and a slide library with well over 100,000 classified slides. The Library also houses the British Cartoon Archive. Kent is within easy reach of London and its major library resources. Postgraduate students have access to the resources provided by the main parent departments: the School of English and the School of History. Both departments run regular research seminars for discussing postgraduate work in progress and other topics. Entry requirements A first or second class honours degree in an appropriate subject (for example, American Studies, History or English degrees with US study component). [-]

Women and Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary area of study which draws on Sociology and other social science disciplines as well as those which are located in the humanities such as English and History. It encompasses a wide area of interests ranging from investigations into the ways in which society is structured to explorations of cultural representations and texts. A central concern is to analyse how different bases of inequality and identity, such as race, gender and class, intersect with each other. This area of study emerged from the women's movements of the 1960s and 1970s and is now a well-established part of the university curriculum. In Warwick the Centre is located in the Department of Sociology but draws its membership from across the university and from many different disciplines, reflecting its interdisciplinary nature. ...
