Studying Philosophy and Social Anthropology enables you to engage with the world’s major philosophies and thinkers, as well a holistic study of people’s ideas, beliefs, practices and activities in a wide range of local, global and transnational settings. What is philosophy? Why is it important? Is it relevant? As a student of Philosophy at Kent, you do not so much learn about philosophy as learn to do it yourself. This includes not only studying major philosophies and philosophers, but also contributing your own ideas to an ongoing dialogue. You develop the ability to connect the most abstract ideas to the most concrete things in our experience. Social anthropologists study how and why we do the things we do, for example, how we work, use technologies, and negotiate conflicts, relationships and change.The School of Anthropology and Conservation is a research-led environment offering a wide range of modules, with a particular strength being the study of visual anthropology.
