Sociology and Anthropology in Oxford
Join the Sociology and Anthropology Oxford Summer School at Oxford Summer Courses
Are you fascinated by the amazing variety of human behaviour? Do you want to get to the heart of what it means to live in a society? Studying Sociology and Anthropology allows you to take apart ideas such as 'normal', to appreciate the complexity of human life. It will give you insight into how power is constructed and operates; how groups form and interact; and how societies have viewed themselves at different points in history. This is a course for the open-minded, the critical and the curious.
Oxford's researchers are working at the forefront of these fields, addressing fundamental questions through the study of current and past societies. Working with them will sharpen your skills of analysis and open your eyes to the dynamics at play in all of our lives. Oxford also offers the unique resource of the Pitt Rivers Museum, a 19th century ethnographic collection of objects taken from peoples around the world, as engaging as it is contentious, that can offer insight into different peoples' understandings of the world - not least the collectors.
