In recent years, the Humanities have become one of the most versatile areas of study with regard to the interests and disciplines that revolve around human phenomena, such as History, Art, Philosophy or Literature. On the other hand, Social Anthropology is a link between humanistic knowledge and social sciences, an essential way to complement that knowledge about the past and provide it with a present dimension in order to better understand the human processes in current societies.The Degree in Humanities and Social Anthropology takes into account the new career opportunities related to the so-called “New Economy” and emerging sectors related to Culture. The labour market and particularly the sector related to culture require combining the basic and general humanistic knowledge with the contributions from Social Sciences and, of course, with the new Information Technologies and Communications. This goes perfectly with the institutional vision of the UCAM, which aims to strengthen the relations between the University and its environment and to achieve social development in accordance with the new social and business demands, and human and social values.Thus, the main objective of the Degree in Humanities and Social Anthropology is to train professionals involved in the sector of Culture and able to put their humanistic knowledge into practice by making critical assessment on contemporary cultural issues, effectively developing and disseminating interpretations of cultural heritage.The Catholic University San Antonio in Murcia offers this year the studies leading to the undergraduate degree in Humanities and Social Anthropology, framed in the Faculty of Social Sciences and Communication, with a total of 240 ECTS credits.Students, at the end of the degree, will also be able to study a postgraduate degree at the UCAM, since we have a wide range of Master’s degrees which covers different fields of study, such as Cultural Heritage, Bioethics or Social Development.
