M.A. Programme Structure

You can study the Master's programme in Social and Cultural Anthropology as a one-subject or a two subject Master's programme.

In the two-subject Master's programme, you choose another subject in addition to Social and Cultural Anthropology (be careful, this subject will probably be in German!). The programme's modules to be completed also depend on whether the Master's thesis is written in Social and Cultural Anthropology or in the second subject.

The revised Master's programme Social and Cultural Anthropology starts in the winter semester 2021/22. The subject-specific regulations of the new degree programme are already available in their legally binding version in German. The module guides(in German and English) are only available as draft versions at the moment (downloads see below)
