Contemporary cultural and social anthropology aims to understand and explain particular ways of living and behaving in societies all over the world, among different groups of people. Questions of globalisation, identity and authenticity, migration, citizenship, but also of transnational relations, development, and myths of progress are at the heart of the programme. The programme is a broad, one-year Master’s programme in which you design and conduct your own high quality anthropological research. After completing a period of fieldwork, you are expected to write a well-argued thesis. A distinctive feature of this programme is the relative freedom in choosing the topic for your Master’s thesis. When starting this programme, you will need to have a preliminary idea of the kind of research you would like to conduct. This implies basic knowledge of a specific anthropological research theme as well as a region. It is also possible to join one of the established research projects of one of our staff members.
