  1. I am interested in studying anthropology when I graduate high school but since it's not talked about enough it is so confusing for me, I don't really understand what jobs you can get from it and how do you find this jobs, do you have to study something else or what? I read that you can work in government once you finish it but do I have to study politics in order to do it? It is so confusing, i dig anthropology SO MUCH but I'm not informed enough to pursue it when I graduate.

  2. It's confusing when you are born with two different culturals but live in a completely different country.

  3. I love your explaination I understood all of the subject matter. Thums up to your different characters of yourself.

  4. May I possibly please request some of your course work examples by personal email? As aaaaanything along with the books and videos you've suggested in the comments section helps my fascination.
    If you've got a little bit of time to educate and share some links/core texts etc. Thanks for the videos, hopefully chat soon. Hope you are well.

  5. Thank you for this video. Really insightful. I’ve never studied social anthropology but I’m hoping to study sociology and social anthropology at uni

  6. I'm only a sophomore in high school with less than interstellar grades but time to improve(I hope). But I still like to think on things like these. Is there really any way for me to fix what mistakes I made last year and improve my academic career in general?

  7. A lot of people have already commented something like this but thank you (once again!) for this really helpful introduction, if you will, on what social anthropology is; you broke this subject down to its essence very succinctly and held my attention throughout both videos. I just finished my A levels two weeks ago and am currently deciding on what to study in university. I wonder if you can help me a little with my dilemma: do you think taking a joint honours degree in sociology and social anthropology is advisable? In terms of workload, difficulty of the courses etc. Thank you in advance!

  8. I like analyzing the way people react to the opposite sex & in relationships. Is that the same as anthropology?

  9. I'm a bit more interested in people's things, and the sound making capabilities of peoples things (the instruments that produce sound), and occasionally the sounds they can make with their mouths, lungs and vocal chords than people themselves. Weird, I know. If you judge me as such (weird), I care not.

  10. hey. i just wanted to say i loved the video and i have a question or, more so, a doubt. i want to study anthropology but im quite worried about getting a job afterward. do you have any advice and what did you do after the degree? thank you mate.

  11. I don't like your hair! Guess its a cultural thing πŸ˜‰ Do you recommend any good reads for people interested in the subject matter?

  12. Hie why don’t start teaching anthropology via youtube ?
    You were really amazing in making us understand the basics of it…
    It will be great to learn with you as you are quite relatable with the examples you provide …
    It will be great if you can drop your mail id …. in the comment section …
    Thanks for the video ..

  13. Thanks a lot for making this video!!!! I'll finish high school next year. Anthropology seems fascinating, but my parents say I'm a little unrealistic… I'm interested in medicine as well but anthropology answers the questions that I always want to know. I find a lot of people do a double degree but I can't cuz the best uni for medicine and anthro are not the same, not even in the same states(I'm being greedy I know…). All about making choices…

  14. you seemed to have learned a lot from uni, which did you go to because I might have to go to the one you went to.

  15. Thank you for making this video! I have been not only interested in cultures but passionate about it in many ways. I am now living in Austria and have the opportunity to go back to school at 33 years old. I am considering Social and Cultural Anthropology.

  16. "Social anthropology helps to free you from the social and cultural binds that you have acquired during your lifetime" πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘ŒπŸΎβœ”

    I'm very passionate about anthropology but have no degree or masters. Funnily enough, I've done things backwards and got a career and now want to study. I work in community development and i'm on the board of an international youth network. I have always been passionate about heritage and history and, essentially, story telling.

    I would encourage anyone to simply look into the vast subject, I myself plan on applying for a masters in anthropology and community development. This year I had the pleasure to guest lecture at the university I want to apply to and I haven't even got more than A level qualifications!

    Thanks for a brilliant video, I will use it as inspiration for my personal statement πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎ

  17. Thank you for explaining. I just started my first year on university and anthropology has been such a headache, thank you for making it clearer

  18. hey do you have good ressources about cultural anthropology ( books, movies, documentary, youtube channel , laboratory etc) thx

  19. Thank you very very much ! I'm currently doing a bachelor in Anglophone studies (History, Literature and Linguistics basically) and I'm thinking about doing a master in social Anthropology. You made me realise that ever since I was a child the jobs I wanted to do were all from that field (archaeologist, historian, psychologist…) there are all about understanding the Human culture and mind. I still don't know exactly what I want to do with that but I still have some time. Thank you very much for your videos it was helpful and very interesting ! πŸ™‚

  20. I love this video, i always have these questions and thoughts that whatever a person grows up in is normal. Thanks for choosing a career for me and i’d love to travel to places like japan, africa, thailand, the hood, and all sorts of different cultures. -Tilo (17)

  21. Great videos! I am studying MA Design and doing a project which is the practice of social anthropology through a visual medium so thanks to you that I had a better understanding of this field.

  22. Thank you for an informative video!I have a question. What is the difference between social anthropology and sociology? I sit on the fence thinking of which to study. Thanks πŸ™‚

  23. I am pleased to announce the publication of my latest research papers

  24. I will start by saying your video was very informative and directly to the point. I felt related to the part when you try to explain everyone what social anthropology is which unfortunately not a lot of people know about it. I will start university in Edinburgh this year and I'm gonna study social anthropology. Thanks for taking your time to enlighten people about this study. All the best pal.

    ps. You forgot to mention the common question people ask as well. "What do you do after you finish study anthropology?"
