Social Anthropology and Social Policy - BA (Hons)
This Program explores people’s social relationships and cultural values in a wide range of local, global, diasporic and transnational settings – their political and economic organization, their use of rural and urban spaces, their systems of knowledge and forms of religious experience. As a research-led School, we offer a wide range of specialist topics and ethnographic area modules covering regions such as the Amazon, Central Asia, Southeast Asia, Europe and the Pacific. The application of IT to anthropological research and practice is an important element. At Kent, you also have the opportunity to study visual anthropology, with modules on the anthropological use of photography, film and video.
Social Policy looks at both the nature of social problems and the policies directed towards them by government, as well as examining the role of voluntary and private welfare. You look at debates regarding how best to provide health care, how to provide affordable housing, how to balance work and family life, and how to achieve equality for women, minority ethnic groups and people with disabilities. In studying these and many other vital topics, you develop the knowledge and skills to help you succeed in your future career.
The Program is very flexible and provides a wide range of options. It is based within the School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research, which has consistently achieved high ratings for the quality of its teaching and research.
