The Department of Social Anthropology includes the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology
Social Anthropology at Cambridge is a leading centre globally in anthropological teaching and research. Cambridge anthropologists have always been at the forefront of developments in the discipline. Both in the UK and beyond, a large number of anthropologists teaching in major university departments received their doctoral training here, and the current faculty members are engaged in some of the most innovative frontline research in the human and social sciences today.
Ethnographic Film is an integral part of the Department of Social Anthropology’s teaching curriculum, and student-organised film showings are an especially popular ‘recreational’ event in the termly programming hosted by the Cambridge University Social Anthropology Society (CUSAS)
The School of the Humanities and Social Sciences is concerned with human behaviour, its history and continuing development through the study of archaeology, anthropology, politics and international studies, sociology, economics, history, the philosophy of science, law, criminology and land economy.
