Special Features

The 2014 Research Excellence Framework results confirmed Queen's University's reputation as a 'world-leading' centre for research in Anthropology.

The Anthropology research cluster provides each research student with a first and second supervisor and supplies additional training through postgraduate and qualitative research methods seminars.

Overall monitoring and evaluation of progress of research students is carried out by the School Postgraduate Committee, which also deals with all issues arising from postgraduate admissions and changes of enrolment.

Classes are held in a purpose-built performance room. The School holds a large musical instrument collection, which is used for practical ensemble work, as well as a world music sound archive. Furthermore, the Ethnomusicology programme administers a hypermedia lab specifically designed for the production of ethnomusicological websites.

Research students discuss and present ongoing work in the weekly Postgraduate Seminar, and are encouraged to present work at national and international conferences and to publish an article in an academic journal.

Research students can gain teaching experience as tutors in modules taught in the School.
