Feature module: Anthropology on the Ground

ANTH609 is a work placement module designed to foster your professional development skills. Unlike modules organised around a classroom framework of lectures/seminars, this module foregrounds two complementary approaches to learning that are key to employability: work-based learning and reflective practice. On this module, you will conduct a short work-placement with an organisational partner. In the past, our students have worked with conservation groups in Malaysia, social outreach organisations in the South West of England and the healthcare sector in Plymouth. This module gives you the opportunity to put into practice the array of professional and specialist skills you have learnt about on the anthropology programme and gain invaluable professional experience in preparation for life after university.
