First year programme - Flexible Combined Honours

Mother and babyThe Anthropology programme at Exeter tackles fundamental questions about society and culture, whilst demonstrating the rich diversity of human life across the globe. You will learn about classic anthropological ideas concerning, for example, ritual, kinship, witchcraft, and ethnicity, but also how anthropologists have contributed to debates on important current issues, such as health, war and violence, science and technology, consumption and the environment.

This flexible programme encourages you to query the taken-for-granted, and to ground your views in a historically and culturally informed understanding of the world.

At Exeter, we have a notably contemporary outlook on Anthropology. We will examine talk about witchcraft in Africa as a commentary on globalisation and economic change; Egyptian TV series as expressions of gender relations, power and nation building; and experiments with genomics in Iceland as promises for a new future.

The teaching of Anthropology is based in the Department of Sociology and Philosophy, which has been rated 6th in the country in the recent national Research Assessment Exercise. This gives you access to a range of experts from different fields, and allows you to readily combine anthropology with the study of sociology, philosophy as well as other anthropology-related areas at the University, e.g. Arabic and Islamic studies, archaeology, geography and history, to make the degree that best fits your interests.

Anthropology - Arab bazaar, Muskat Four compulsory Anthropology modules are taken during the first year:

  • Introduction to Social Anthropology - theorising the everyday world - ANT1004 (15 credits)

  • Imagining Social Worlds: Texts - ANT1003 (15 credits)
  • Imagining Social Worlds: Artefacts - ANT1008 (15 credits)

to make a total of 60 credits in this half of the overall Flexible Combined Honours degree programme.

More than 60 credits of Anthropology can be taken each year, if sufficient relevant modules are available, so that this becomes the main element of your degree title.

  • Introduction to Social Analysis - SOC1012 (30 credits)
  • Sociology of Contemporary Society: Part 1 - SOC1026A (15 credits)
