Explore the relationship between citizenship, cultural diversity, and social sustainability.
Sustainability is not only about the environment, climate, or economy. The social component also demands attention – and requires actively involved citizens in various positions. Their roles span from social citizens to players in political decision-making, and from consumers to carers for health and the environment. In the Master's programme in Cultural Anthropology: Sustainable Citizenship, you'll study these developments and citizenship initiatives through a focus on the triangle of People, Planet, and Profit.
Anthropologists continually focus on cultural diversity and differences based on ethnicity, class, gender, age, and health. This Master's programme will equip you with the knowledge and skills to evaluate these facets of life and their interrelationships. During your studies, you will learn traditional anthropological methods and techniques (fieldwork, participatory observation, and qualitative interviews). However, you will also work with innovative methodologies in the area of narrative and digital ethnography as well as the Sensory Ethnography Lab (SEL), which engages in cutting-edge combinations of aesthetics, digital media, and ethnography.
Students with a foreign university-level Bachelor’s degree in Cultural Anthropology, Sociology, Psychology, Pedagogical Sciences, Educational Sciences, General Social Sciences and Political Sciences, will be accepted if they have demonstrable knowledge of issues related to the themes of cultural pluralism, globalisation, citizenship and sustainability which totals at least 15 (ECTS) credit points. In addition, Bachelor’s degree holders must have knowledge of and experience with qualitative research methods (15 credits in total). Academic eligibility will be determined by the Admissions Committee. Please see our website for more information. View Website
