Course description

The Master's programme in Social and Cultural Anthropology, as part of a two-subject Master’s programme, offers comprehensive, research-oriented training. This field delves into human culture broadly and specific cultures in detail, using empirical methods.

While these remain central, recent decades have seen a growing interest in urban and industrial societies. Additionally, examining one's own society has become a significant area of study. In this programme, students engage deeply with various cultural and social phenomena. They explore the complexities of human societies, both past and present. The curriculum encourages critical thinking and a nuanced understanding of diverse cultural contexts.

It encourages students to approach their studies with an open mind and a respectful attitude towards all cultures. This mindset is crucial for building trust and
