Our Head of Department says:
Our Department is among the most respected in the field of social and cultural anthropology in the UK. Students can draw on the exceptional regional expertise of SOAS anthropologists while gaining a broad education in the subject, and an irrepressible curiosity about the world. At SOAS, Anthropology is at the heart of the university, one of its largest and most important subjects. It is central to the shared objective of widening horizons, fostering cross-cultural perspectives, challenging taken-for-granted assumptions, and critical engagement with urgent issues.
