n cultural anthropology we try to gain a better understanding of people – why they are who they are and do what they do; how they think, talk, eat, fight, love; and how they organise themselves socially, politically, and in relation to things like gender, religion, sexuality, ethnicity and inequality. The Master’s Programme in Cultural Anthropology provides you with professional and analytical capacities that are valuable in areas such as international development, migration, business development, the civil service, museums and tourism.
WHY THIS PROGRAMME?
The specialisation in Cultural Anthropology within the Masters Programme in the Humanities, offers you an opportunity to study cultural and social anthropology in an international learning environment where approximately one half of the students are from outside of Sweden. The diversity of student backgrounds contributes to a rich educational experience and gives you a global professional network that will be very useful in your future career. Our teaching is grounded in ethnographic research and inspired by the teachers’ own field research experiences and insights.
In addition to enrolling in courses in anthropology at the department, you have additional opportunities to select courses at other departments within the university, to enroll for a semester at another university in Europe or further abroad, and to carry out an internship. While most students choose to complete a two year degree, it is also possible to follow a one-year course of study.
During the programme you can expect to:
- study cultural and social anthropology in an international context
- study courses grounded in ethnographic research
- carry out your own qualitative fieldwork
- do an internship in an organisation that fits your special interests
The one-year programme provides in-depth knowledge of theory and method in anthropology and includes the opportunity to complete a minor anthropological fieldwork. If you previously completed the one-year Master’s degree in Cultural Anthropology you may be admitted to the second year and will then write a 15 credit essay during the second year.
The two-year programme broadens and further deepens your anthropological competence by giving you the opportunity to take additional courses in other relevant disciplines and to take applied anthropology courses. You can also do an internship or study one semester abroad.
You have studied cultural or social anthropology for at least a year. You may have a Bachelor’s degree in Cultural or Social Anthropology itself, but you may also have studied enough anthropological subjects in other programmes such as Development Studies, Political Science, Sociology or Archaeology.
You probably won’t come directly from your Bachelor’s studies to Uppsala University but have spent some time working or traveling to experience the world. This has raised your interest in understanding the world from a social and cultural perspective. You have probably started to understand and appreciate that not everyone holds the same values as you do. If you also have experience working in the fields of Humanitarian Aid, Development work or Diplomacy, you are very likely to be the kind of person we are looking for.
You are naturally curious about people, society and cultures and a future PhD education might be a possibility. Therefore, you would enjoy coming in close contact with current research even if it means extra work outside your Master’s studies.
The programme leads to a Master of Arts (120 credits) with Cultural Anthropology as the main field of study. It is also possible to graduate after one academic year with a Master of Arts (60 credits).
A Bachelor’s degree, equivalent to a Swedish Kandidatexamen, from an internationally recognised university. The main field of study must be within the humanities or social sciences.
Also required is 60 credits in anthropology.
