In Anthropology III students are socialised into the 'doing of anthropology' through courses in Fieldwork and Theory, usually during the first semester. In the second semester, depending on the availability of staff, an array of courses are taught, inclusive of, but not confined to:
- Medical Anthropology
- Dominance and Resistance: Love, Sex and Money
- Anthropological Perspectives on Heritage
- Work and Leisure
Anthropology III is also the year in which students conduct independent mini-research projects, usually a life-history project. This project, supervised by a member of staff, provides the student with ample opportunity to engage in face-to-face research, and to come to terms with (at least on a small scale) the engine of anthropological theory and discourse -- fieldwork.
By the end of Anthropology III, a student has been socialised into the dynamic nature of fieldwork, and the theoretical underpinnings of a discipline that is in existence over a century.
