Innovative new programmes for 2011

(11 October 2010)

From 2011 onwards we will be offering two innovative, four-year, integrated masters programmes in anthropology at Queen's Campus. These programmes will enable students to complete a fourth year of study leading to either a Master of Anthropology or Master of Anthropology [Health and Well-Being] degree. In years one, two and three the programme is based closely on either the BSc Biological Anthropology or the BSc Health and Human Sciences. In year four an extended research project based on fieldwork or lab-based research is undertaken under the supervision of an experienced member of staff. This research is carried out alongside a series of workshops designed to enhance employability after graduation.

For 2011 entrants the fourth year of this degree is funded at Higher Education Funding Council rates, which means that an integrated masters degree will be funded at undergraduate, rather than post-graduate fee levels.

For 2011 entry students should, in the first instance, apply for either B991 or L620.

NB: The integrated masters programmes are offered subject to final approval byt he Education Committee of Durham University.

For further information please contact our admissions secretary Lisa Brownlie.

*The placement degrees are offered subject to final approval
