Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology

How do people from different cultural backgrounds live together in the same urban neighbourhood? Why do some people turn their back on society and follow populist leaders? How is climate change impacting people’s lives in Bangladesh? Which issues underpin the public debate on whether a country should apologise for its past involvement in the slave trade?

As a student of Cultural Anthropology and Developmental Sociology at VU Amsterdam, you learn to understand the world through other people‚Äôs eyes and interact with people from different backgrounds. You learn from and with each other. This programme equips you for a wide range of careers, from a researcher at a civil society organisation or a cultural specialist in the public or private sector, to a journalist or policy advisor at local or national level.  

Do you take a keen interest in themes such as migration, cultural differences, globalisation, inequality and religion? Are you excited by the prospect of working on local and global anthropological issues? Then this is definitely the study programme for you! Would you prefer to study Anthropology in Dutch? In that case, opt for Culturele Antropologie en Ontwikkelingssociologie
