About this degree

The Digital Anthropology MSc is the first of its kind: placing digital technologies, platforms and practices in social and cultural, and comparative context. Based in one of the largest and most comprehensive anthropology departments in the UK, students study core anthropological theories (including kinship, materiality/immateriality and embodiment) with emphasis on their relevance for understanding digital culture.

Who this course is for:

The programme is suitable for those with a prior degree in anthropology but also for those with degrees in neighbouring disciplines who wish to be trained in anthropological and related approaches to digital culture.
