Social Anthropology at St Andrews is internationally renowned for our innovative teaching and cutting-edge research. Famed for our outstanding results and friendly atmosphere, and set in the ancient and beautiful setting of Scotland's first university, we were ranked first in both the 2014 National Student Survey of Teaching and the 2014 Guardian ranking of UK Universities. We have regional expertise across the world, along with three internationally recognised research centres: the Centre for Amerindian Studies, the Centre for Cosmopolitan Studies and the Centre for Pacific Studies.
A week of events addressing the Limits of Collaboration in Social Anthropology. Events include Collaborative Film Day on Thurs 10th Sept, the Ladislav Holy Memorial Lecture 2015 on Thurs 10th Sept 2015 and a Symposium on Fri 11th and Sat 12th September.
The MRes in Anthropology, Art and Perception forms an important Masters’ training for postgraduate research into Anthropology of Art, Material Culture and Visual Expression. We have been running a series of experimental laboratories with invited experts. This began in September 2014 and links to the 'Knowing from the Inside' research project.
The University is launching an exciting new internship programme, "The Laidlaw Undergraduate Internship Programme in Research and Leadership", thanks to the generous support from The Lord Laidlaw of Rothiemay. This is the biggest UG internship programme of its kind in Scotland and is a unique opportunity for students to gain paid professional work experience, contribute to high level research in the University and benefit from an intensive leadership training course.
