Career Development

  • This MA enables students to both deepen their general anthropological knowledge, specialise through one of our MA strands, and develop their own research project.

World Class Facilities

  • Students will benefit from the work carried out in the Institute of Cognition and Culture (ICC) which is one of the world's first centres for research in cognition and culture. This is a burgeoning interdisciplinary field in which scholars seek to explain patterns of cultural stability and variation utilizing theories and methods of the cognitive and evolutionary sciences.

Student Experience

  • A unique feature of Anthropology at Queens University is the study of Ethnomusicology, which is the anthropology of music.

 The MA Anthropology at Queen's allows students to develop unique research projects in the fields of anthropology, ethnomusicology and cognition & culture. The resulting dissertations demonstrate intellectual independence, advanced research experience and valuable transferable skills required for further PhD research and strongly valued by a wide variety of employers.
