MSc Social Anthropology

About the MSc programmes

The programme is an excellent and intensive introduction to the discipline of social anthropology.

This programme is intended for graduates with a good first degree in any discipline, including those who may have studied anthropology within the context of a more general degree. 

The programme offers the following benefits:

  • Teaching is directly informed and enhanced by the very strong tradition of fieldwork-based research within the LSE Department of Anthropology.
  • We offer a full academic tutorial system, which means that students on this MSc benefit from direct and sustained contact with members of staff.

Programme details

Students take a compulsory core course, a choice of options to the value of two full units, and complete an essay (dissertation) to be submitted by early September. Please visit lse.ac.uk/sa for further information on the programme content.

Scheduled teaching normally includes three hours of lectures and three hours of seminars per week (depending on options selected), supplemented by regular academic tutorials.

Compulsory courses

Students will be expected to choose courses to the value of two full units from a range of options.
