Anthropology - Ghana

The Anthropology Placement in Ghana is not for the faint hearted; it is for those with a big heart.

This placement will give you valuable and a very powerful insight into Anthropology themes and modules such as;

Using Cultural Anthropology, Behavioural Anthropology and Social Anthropology studies as a basis to take your theory studies and put it into practice.

Vocational Impact has helped Anthropology students from the UK, Europe and around the world travel to Ghana to fulfil their education and research ambitions, with many students conducting primary research at our project partners.
