Why study Social and Cultural anthropology?
Sociocultural anthropology examines the diversity of human societies while searching for commonalities among them. It uses a holistic strategy to offer different approaches to understanding contemporary challenges and involves the humanities by examining expressive culture (music, performance, material art, texts) and religious practices and movements. They are the link between the past and the present and are particularly responsible for the preservation and documentation of human culture, heritage, and history.
This IB course provides students with an understanding of contemporary real-world issues such as war and conflict, poverty, injustice, and human rights, as well as evidence of the importance of comparative perspectives.
Participant observation and in-depth, empirical studies of social groups distinguish social and cultural anthropology from other social sciences. Areas of anthropological inquiry in this course are: belonging; classifying the world; communication, expression and technology; conflict; development; health, illness and healing; movement, time and space; production, exchange and consumption; and the body. These topics are explored in terms of traditional anthropological concepts such as belief, knowledge, change, culture, identity, materiality, power, social relations, society, and symbolism.
Students are exposed to the concepts, methods, language, and theories of the discipline. At the heart is the practice of anthropologists, and the insights they produce in the form of ethnographic material. Students gain critical, reflexive knowledge through authentic anthropological practice. This program represents the essence of an IB education, and it promotes the development of globally aware, internationally minded, and ethically sensitive citizens.
Students taking either the Standard Level (SL) or Higher Level (HL) of the IB Social and Cultural Anthropology course are expected to be able to:
Explore the social and cultural complexities of daily life
To develop new skills that facilitate an understanding of the interconnectedness of local, regional, and global processes and issues
Develop an understanding of how cultural and social contexts impact anthropological knowledge
Develop analytical skills and ethical awareness as critical thinkers
Reflect on and transform their own experiences and those of others in light of anthropological understanding
IB Assesment (both SL/HL):
1. Knowledge and understanding
Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of
anthropological concepts and theories
anthropological research methods and ethics
a range of appropriately identified ethnographic materials
specified areas of inquiry
2. Application and analysis
Identify anthropological concepts in ethnographic materials. Formulate an argument based on ethnographic examples and anthropological concepts. Reflect on the "big" anthropological questions using anthropological knowledge and understanding. Evaluate ethnographic materials in light of the anthropologist's point of view, research methods, concepts, and ethics. Formulate an argument using anthropological theories. Engage in anthropological practice in the internal assessment task, including the recognition of the position of the observer; select appropriate methods; interpret methods; interpret data; and consider ethical concerns
3. Synthesis and evaluation
Compare and contrast the characteristics of specific cultures and societies. Using appropriate conceptual frameworks, analyse and critically evaluate a range of ethnographic materials. Explain methodological choices and critically evaluate anthropological practice in the internal assessment task. Only at the HL level, demonstrate knowledge of anthropological theory and its application to ethnographic materials.
4. Selection and use of a variety of skills
Determine an appropriate context, anthropological concept, and research question. Utilise methods and skills, appropriate to an anthropological research question, to gather, present, analyse, interpret and reflect on ethnographic data
Paper one SL/HL: How are we the same as and different from each other? Discuss with references to at least two sources of ethnographic material and examples from the passage.
Paper two, section A SL/HL:
With reference to ethnographic material from one area of inquiry you have studied, discuss how either symbolism or materiality or society helps you to understand one of the following issues that is grounded in a contemporary, real-world example.
Paper two, section B SL/HL: Discuss how the body is constructed through either symbolism or social relations.
Social and cultural anthropology at degree level
Sociocultural anthropology is an increasingly popular degree because it offers flexible career prospects by teaching topics that are applicable to many different fields. For example, the research skills learned in a sociology degree can be used in writing grant proposals for scientific research or analysing a startup's marketing plan.
They conduct important studies to evaluate social problems of the society, considering major issues like caste inequality and ethnic conflicts. So, without them, it would be difficult to understand the diverse perspectives represented by each nation and tribe. Studying Sociocultural Anthropology can also help develop your ability to uncover difficult problems within complex organizations, understand the local cultures in which foreign companies operate, and work more effectively with others in solving difficult problems. It's always smart to know how other people think before you expose yourself to criticism- with this degree, you can find out what's really going on under the hood in other countries while learning how things develop here at home.
If you are interested in studying contemporary issues in culture and politics from an anthropological perspective, then a Masters in Anthropology, Ecology, and Global Justice could be ideal.
Anthropology helps us understand the origins, recognition, and management of health issues within communities from our own cultural perspective, but also from the perspective of others who view these concepts differently due to their unique traditions or beliefs. Medical anthropologists explore this concept by examining what we believe about disease compared to the perspectives of other countries. If you want to work in this field, you should pursue a master's degree in Medical Anthropology.
If you want to study the social, moral, and psychological problems of our society today, you should pursue a master's degree in psychological and psychiatric anthropology. Students in this field learn about psychiatric problems from an anthropological perspective while developing new ways to diagnose these illnesses.
You may be surprised at how anthropology is connected to so many fields at once. Consider anthropology and development, for example. With a Master's in Anthropology and Development, you'll be able to apply your knowledge by working with a team to do "live" consulting work for real-world organizations. You will learn about social change development theories using practical tools.
What careers can studying Social and cultural anthropology lead to?
Studying social and cultural anthropology will never go in vain because as long as there are people around, we’ll be needing anthropologists to study them!
Here are some career options for those who study social and cultural anthropology:
Anthropology is often studied along with political science because it provides so much interesting cultural information. One of the more specific benefits of studying anthropology is the expanded job opportunities. Whether you are applying for international government jobs or want to lead a new project abroad or in the UK, knowing about local customs can help you develop important skills like empathy and diplomacy.
Political anthropology itself is a sub-discipline of social and cultural anthropology that deals with the comparative, fieldwork-based study of politics. Anthropologists study how different political organizations are shaped by their environments and other factors, such as culture or religion, in order to identify patterns that can help better understand societies. It is a field of study that involves the analysis of power, leadership, and influence in all their social dimensions. It also includes the cultural symbolism and ritual practices that affect policy-making processes in large government institutions, such as international treaties between countries.
Teachers will take the time to assess your starting point then develop a personalised syllabus to work towards your objectives. Online classes will focus on your areas of weakness and on developing the confidence you need to achieve your goals. Lessons will also push students in areas that they are already comfortable in, encouraging constant improvement and developing positive learning habits.
