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.
