2 Anthropology reviews at University of Aberdeen
Anthropology and Archaeology, MA Hons
Lecturers were professional and approachable. The Anthropology course content was really eye-opening and encouraged us to consider interesting new perspectives on all sorts of topics from food to love to death. One of my friends did complain that the course used too many specific examples and wished they would talk more about 'the bigger picture' on topics we were studying. Archaeology was also really interesting, but the course covers loads so it's easy to fall behind if you miss a lecture. Both courses were challenging but not too difficult. Hardly saw my personal tutor, it wasn't made clear what kind of issues we were supposed to contact our tutors about if we had any. Don't know about job prospects because I was in first year. Anthropology was all theory. Archaeology was much better, with a unit about archaeological practice, a few practicals and plenty of volunteering opportunities when I spoke to my lecturers.
