BSc (Honours) Anthropology and Sociology
The Anthropology and Sociology major ensures that students get a strong disciplinary foundation with a grounding in theory and methods, along with a choice of courses that will allow them to pursue more specialised interests during the course of the programme.
The Anthropology and Sociology programme at LUMS reflects the interests of the faculty and the areas of research range from the study and examination of gifts and exchange, bonded labour, legal anthropology and gender and power systems, to the ethnography of Pakistan and its regions, the anthropology and sociology of religion and religious fundamentalism, medical anthropology and the anthropology of art.
The programme is also committed to providing undergraduates the opportunity to undertake their own research through a special project in Sociology and Anthropology. While this is rare in most undergraduate courses, LUMS has had considerable success in encouraging students to do fieldwork during their stay at university. As a result, students have the option of undertaking a substantial piece of field based research as part of the Sociology and Anthropology programme.
