Social Anthropology at St Andrews is internationally renowned for its innovative teaching and cutting-edge research. In the beautiful setting of Scotland’s first university, we are a friendly community of researchers and students who have come from all over the world to study here.
Social Anthropology at St Andrews teaches you to take a comparative and global view of what it means to be human and how to look at the world from other people’s perspectives.
The Department has strongly established research on Latin America and the Caribbean, the Pacific, Africa, Europe, and Asia. We have championed innovative ethnographic methods and theoretical scholarship regarding the relationship between anthropology and history, epistemology, and cosmopolitan studies.
