The faculty also believes that basic ethnography remains the cornerstone on which all cultural anthropology rests and are concerned with the representation of anthropological knowledge in writing and film. There is a commitment to an understanding of complex societies that is informed by a comparative perspective and knowledge of smaller-scale settings. Recent field research by faculty and students has been conducted in East and West Africa, North and South America (including research among Native Americans), Australia, the Caribbean, Eastern and Western Europe, Melanesia, the Middle East, Polynesia, South Asia, and the former Soviet Union.

Museums, while always significant, have become perhaps the major institution of national legitimization, especially for emerging or non-Western states. The project of museum anthropology also includes a perspective on the meaning of placing people or objects on display and whose authority is interposed between these objects and viewers. The M.A. in Museum Anthropology, offered jointly by the Columbia Department of Anthropology and the American Museum of Natural History, is a professional degree for those already employed in or interested in moving into the museum field.

Compulsory modules. Social and Cultural Anthropology. Social and Cultural Anthropology. Social and Cultural Anthropology MSc. MA History and Classics. History is a perfect partner for Classics, the study of the languages and literatures of the ancient Greeks - the 'inventors' of the western historical tradition - and the Romans.

MA History and Classics

Ancient Greek is the language in which many of the basic concepts underlying Western society found expression for the first time; Latin remained the principal language of scholarship, record and much literature for over 1000 years. Greek and Roman produced a heritage which is fundamental to later Western civilisation making the combination between History and Classics an especially important one. Knowledge of and enquiry into the ancient world was vitally important in later periods of intellectual, political and architectural history.

Knowledge of the classical world is an important tool for historians of all periods, place and themes. Programme details These are summary guides only - see foot of page for full details.

The MRes begins with a core module, Using the Past, taught in weekly lectures and seminars. This will give you a foundation in Graeco-Roman culture, the ways in which classical writers used their own past and how the classics have been received over time. From there you’ll shape your own studies, selecting the classical eras, authors, and disciplines you want to focus on, and conduct supervised research in these areas to prepare for your dissertation.

You’ll benefit from research training in the School of Languages, Cultures and Societies, including a practical introduction to key research tools and resources in classics.
