Students must complete five courses in the Anthropology Studies Honours programme. One of these courses is an independent research paper carried out under the supervision of an academic in the Department.
The compulsory methodology course, of which a component is an introduction to statistics, is offered in the first semester. With this course as a base, students may choose to specialise in Social and/or Cultural Anthropology or Paleoanthropology.
If students choose the former, they may choose from courses such as ‘Youth, Identity and Language’, ‘Anthropology of the Body’, and ‘Nature and Society’. Electives can be chosen from a wide variety of social science courses.
If Paleoanthropology is chosen, a structured programme of Paleoanthropology, Anatomy, and Archaeology is on offer. A course in field research methods in Archaeology and Paleoanthropology is also compulsory in this stream.
In both streams, the research paper is based on independent fieldwork. Topics are formulated during the methodology courses.
A Degree with a major in Anthropology and a final course mark of at least 65% in the particular discipline.
