Are you captivated by how people interact in today's global societies? Do you want to deepen your knowledge of the dynamics in our society? Are you fascinated by the tensions between economic, political and social hierarchies that often create inequalities and diversity challenges?

You’ll explore all these issues and more if you follow the Master's programme in Social and Cultural Anthropology at VU Amsterdam.

During this one-year programme, you’ll learn and apply anthropological theories to issues such as social inequality and cultural diversity. You’ll then immediately put that into practice during a three-month fieldwork research project. 

Social and Cultural Anthropology is all about studying what makes us human. You’ll explore people's lives across time and space. The programme looks at people and cultures from just about any angle you can imagine. If you’re curious about us humans, then this Master's is the perfect path to more carefully analyse the human condition: yesterday, today and tomorrow.
