Course Content The Postgraduate Certificate in Anthropology & Development is a one-year course designed for development and humanitarian aid professionals (and those who envisage such a career) who would like to add an anthropological perspective to their development expertise. This PG Cert has proven popular with a variety of students who, for one reason or another, are unable to enrol in the full MA programme and/or who want to sample anthropology to see if it is the right field for them.
Subjects Taught Students take a total of 40 credits over 1 year.
Careers or Further Progression This course can enhance the career of development professionals by equipping them with a critical perspective informed by anthropology’s holistic approach. It is also suitable for those interested in pursuing NGO work in the voluntary/charity sector.
