A majority of our PhD graduates have embarked on an academic career, taking up lectureships in universities in the UK as well as abroad, or pursuing further their interests through post-doctoral fellowships and other research-based posts. At the same time, SOAS anthropology PhD graduates have gone on to a range of occupations in the fields of social and market research, development organisations at home and overseas, international and national government and policy, heritage and museum services, journalism and advisory services of many kinds. Social anthropology is widely regarded by employers as excellent training, equipping holders of the degree with a range of sought after skills. The MPhil/PhD offers graduates the opportunity to enhance their qualitative research skills and advance their expertise in their chosen field of study. Thus equipped, they are valuable not only for generating the empirical data required for reaching certain decisions but also for providing the necessary critical tools that enable organisations to innovate and address the challenges of a fast-changing world. The SOAS PhD in Social Anthropology is recognized by the ESRC as both a +3 and 1+3 course. -
