    I'm thinking politics and philosophy at Uni, but I came across social anthropology on the Kent prospectus, I want to know more, and also any advice on whether I should take it (how useful?)

    I've applied for Social Anthropology this year so I am no expert. I understand it to be the study of what it means to be human in different contexts and ages. Anthropology focuses, for example, on the family structure in different cultures, or on how the economy works in a specific tribe/group, and it does so through a comparative study. If you want to learn more about it, I suggest you read an introductory book. I read Lucy Mair's 'Introduction to Anthropology' and found the subject very fascinating! As for what it is useful for, it's a social science degree so it can lead you to a wide range of careers. I'm looking at doing an MA in Gender or Women Studies and then hopefully join an NGO that works for women empowerment.

    Hope it was of help!
