Master in Anthropology and Sociology

The Master in Anthropology and Sociology is a programme designed for students interested in the comparative study of global issues from the centres to the margins, and across borders. It examines in a critical way international relations and development with the goal of questioning totalising views of globalisation and the conventional North-South divide. Courses in the programme engage with theoretical approaches and methodological tools in anthropology and sociology in order to enable students to explore several key themes: development; the state and international governance; violence and conflict; rural-urban relations; migration; global health and biomedicine; law, market and labours; inequality; gender; environment; the politics of images.

PhD in Anthropolgy and Sociology

The PhD programme is designed to take four years after the Institute’s master programme or a related master programme from another university. During their doctoral studies, candidates are required to obtain 24 course credits and defend a preliminary thesis dissertation before completing fieldwork and writing their doctoral thesis.

Courses open to students from other disciplines
