About the Department of Anthropology & Sociology

Scholars in Anthropology have an impact on the world outside of academia—on law and government, in the arts and on public media. Our students benefit from the range of experts in Asian, African, and Middle Eastern languages and politics gathered in other departments at SOAS. Students find a warm, often jolly, but always challenging scholarly home in the Department of Anthropology.

Our Department is among the most respected in the field of social and cultural anthropology in the UK. Students can draw on the exceptional regional expertise of SOAS anthropologists while gaining a broad education in the subject, and an irrepressible curiosity about the world. At SOAS, Anthropology is at the heart of the university, one of its largest and most important subjects. It is central to the shared objective of widening horizons, fostering cross-cultural perspectives, challenging taken-for-granted assumptions, and critical engagement with urgent issues.
