Our paper can be taken as part of the Archaeology and Anthropology Tripos, in which case it is most usually studied alongside Archaeology, Biological Anthropology, and a range of optional papers, including an interdisciplinary paper on being human, and introductions to sociology, psychology, politics, or the languages and cultures on Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia.
Students with a particular interest in Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia can take Social Anthropology as part of the Faculty’s Ancient Near Eastern Studies programme.
Finally, Social Anthropology is a popular option for students in the first year of the Politics, Psychology and Sociology Tripos, where it is studied alongside core papers in each of the three main PPS disciplines. For more general information about Social Anthropology, see here.
