This program aims to broaden students’ knowledge of theoretical and methodological approaches to the study of social structures and processes in a historical-comparative framework. Course work includes social theory, migration, religion, ethnicity, cultural policies, social movements, globalization, modernity, urban development and state research.
Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology
The program in sociology and social anthropology emphasizes interdisciplinary and critical approaches to social issues. The integrated study of two disciplines fosters an environment that is conscious of the historicity of social science categories and theories, their meaning in different cultures and engagement in the practical world.
The majority of the department’s alumni find employment in academia, NGOs or the private sector. Many master’s degree graduates pursue doctoral degrees.
