Overview

This Programme offers an intensive introduction to contemporary anthropology. As societies around the world vary enormously in their social, cultural and political forms, the Master’s of Social Anthropology Programme is designed to study these variations and the common humanity contained therein. Such topics as transnational mobility, debated cultural practices of inclusion and exclusion as well as the transformation of the state are especially articulated in the Programme. It also provides the students with a thorough theoretical and methodological grounding, essential for attaining non-judgmental understanding and appreciation of the diversity of other cultures, significance of cross-cultural perspectives and intercultural understanding.
