Program description

Master's Degree in Social Anthropology

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 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. The Programme combines classroom and experiential field-based learning activities as appropriate for each student’s career plans. It teaches students how to carry out independent scientific research and conduct ethnographic fieldwork.

Due to international cooperation between Vytautas Magbnus University and Southern Illinois University (USA) Social Anthropology students have the opportunity to receive Southern Illinois University’s Certificate in Intercultural Understanding. For that the successful completion of 18 ECTS three courses held by visiting anthropology professors from Southern Illinois University and other universities is required.
