What makes us human: why and how do we live the way we do?

Understand how people create their worlds

Language, sexuality, gender, art, sports, clothing, economies, political and legal systems, religions, technology, wars, food … there are so many aspects that shape our worlds. Worlds, in the plural form, because societies, communities and cultures everywhere on this planet are different. If you are looking for unique and profound insights into human kind, then this Master is the smart choice.

Anthropology works
In the programme you will learn a multi-layered approach to understand how people, their beliefs, values, practices, interactions and ideas are interconnected and impact each other. The critical thinking, advanced research skills and cultural awareness will open your mind in ways you may not have imagined before. 

Whether it is climate change, migration, inequality or decolonisation: now, more than ever, anthropologists are needed to address society's most pressing issues. Also the need for anthropologists in organisations – public, private or NGOs – is growing. Hence we offer from September 2023 a new track in professional anthropology.
