About

The Anthropology programme offered by the University of Nairobi is now widely recognized in developmental circles as a crucial subject in the development of any nation.

Overview

Program Details

In the recent past, development institutions including the World Bank have realized the centrality of culture in development. They are now incorporating people’s way of life in everything they do for developmental sustainability.

Many countries in Africa are currently going through socio cultural, economic, demographic, and political transitions. As a consequence of this the continent is facing a number of challenges including a sagging debt burden, raising levels of poverty, high morbidity rates, famine, population growth, climate change, environmental degradation, political conflict and change in family structures.  Anthropologists are therefore being called upon to use their unique training and skills to address these problems and challenges.

The Anthropology programme offered by the University of Nairobi  is designed to equip students with skills and knowledge that will prepare them to contribute to the development process, using the unique anthropological holistic approach of solving societal problems. We therefore have a range of courses that will prepare the students to meet these challenges.
