The Department of Social Anthropology at Stockholm University is a world-leading research institution that provides a global and comparative perspective on the diversity of social and cultural forms of the contemporary world.

The master’s program reflects the Department’s commitment to understanding people, ideas, and objects in situ, and how they travel across political and cultural borders, challenging, reinforcing or redrawing them in the process. Studies are flexible and the program offers a range of courses that reflects the Department’s research interests. It is also possible, by agreement, to choose courses from other departments to tailor an individual specialization.

Compulsory courses are e.g. History and Philosophy of Anthropological Theory, and Anthropological Methods. The methods course teaches fieldwork skills and has a strong practical orientation. Students also take part in the “Writing Anthropology Workshop” which runs throughout their first year of study. During the second year, students formulate an independent research project and carry out long-term fieldwork in Sweden or abroad before writing their thesis.

Subject

Social Anthropology

Anthropology deals with the entire range of human social and cultural phenomena in places ranging from corporate boardrooms and think tanks in major cities, to rural markets and war zones in the hinterlands of globalisation. Anthropology inquires into the different ways in which societies are organised and how people make sense of the worlds in which they live. In short, anthropology asks what it means to be human.


The Department of Social Anthropology at Stockholm University is a world-leading research institution. Our courses and programs reflect the Department’s commitment to understanding people, ideas, and objects in situ, and how they travel across political and cultural borders, challenging, reinforcing or redrawing them in the process.
