International Development with Anthropology

On this course you’ll explore all aspects of cultural diversity. At the same time, you’ll discover how different aspects of international development such as economic growth, and social and cultural transformation, can affect people’s lives. You’ll have the opportunity to draw on other disciplines such as economics, geography and politics to better understand how policy and practice can be improved through greater anthropological engagement. Within UEA’s School of International Development you’ll develop practical skills in key anthropological methods while developing your interest in specific subject areas. In the world-renowned Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts you’ll study material culture. You’ll also have the opportunity to learn a language (e.g. French and Spanish) and participate in a filmmaking for development workshop. **Course Structure** **Year 1** In your first year you’ll be introduced to contemporary debates and issues in international development and anthropology. You’ll study several core modules that will introduce you to these essential principles. These will include Introduction to Social Anthropology, Introduction to Development Studies and Evidence in Development and Geography. You’ll also select optional modules from a range offered by the School, covering topics such as natural resources and development, economics of development, and human geography. **Year 2** In your second year you’ll continue to deepen and widen your knowledge of anthropology and international development. You’ll develop research skills, including learning anthropological data collection methods. You’ll also participate in an ethnographic film-making workshop with Postcode Films, and produce a short ethnographic film. You’ll have the chance to tailor your studies to your interests by choosing, for example, modules in politics, economics, specific international development topics, or more anthropologically focused modules in the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts. You can also study a language. **Year 3** In your final year you’ll select modules across a diverse range of topics, examining subjects relating to development and anthropology. In addition to taught modules you’ll complete a substantial research project on a topic of your choice, supervised by a member of the anthropology team. You’ll experience a greater emphasis on independent skills and employability in your final year, and have the opportunity to undertake the practical, skill-based module Development in Practice. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
