Anthropology is a three-year major subject which may be studied for degree curricula in the Faculty of Humanities, Commerce and Science. In the first year, we offer an introduction to the scope and contemporary relevance of the discipline. We draw on ethnographic examples from southern Africa as well as the rest of the world. In Anthropology Two we deepen the discussion by focusing on specialist ethnographic and thematic topics. In the third year we provide a seminar-focused course, which continues the study of institutions and emphasises social change. In 2012 for example, we offer undergraduate courses (second year courses) on the Indian Ocean world, and political and economic anthropology. Our third year courses include Fieldwork, Theory and a discussion on new ethnographies.
