The Institute of Social Anthropology teaches social anthropology in its full diversity. Key areas of research at our institute include (but are not limited to): migration, anthropology of the state, economic and ecological anthropology as well as media anthropology. Our different degree programs – one bachelor and three master’s programs which include the specialised master’s program Anthropology of Transnationalism and the State (ATS) and CREOLE – provide students with a thorough grounding in anthropological theory and methodology. Furthermore, they offer vast possibilities for specialisation. The Institute of Social Anthropology also participates in several postgraduate programs for doctoral and post-doctoral researchers.
