Culture refers to the way people learn to value, believe, behave and express themselves. Are you interested in cultures in other parts of the world? Or do you want to better understand what's happening right around the corner? Either way, the Bachelor's in Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology will give you a new perspective on the world around you.
This year, you won’t be able to attend any busy on-campus events with lots of people. But our online Open House is the perfect way to get to know UvA study programmes and university life from the comfort of your own home.
Every study programme has an Open House page with videos, FAQs and live events. On the main Open House website you can discover all our programmes,explore the city and campus, and get inspired during our theme weeks.
Our dual language programme in Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology offers both an English-only and a Dutch/English track. During the first one and a half years, when all students follow the same obligatory courses, all lectures are taught in English, and students can choose between English or Dutch tutorials. Assignments will be written in the language of instruction of the relevant group. Concluding exams (tentamens) will be offered in both languages, so that students can choose to write their answer in either English or Dutch.
After the first one and a half years, students follow a number of obligatory courses, while they also select their own study program out of a series of specialisation courses. These specialisation courses will be taught in English. Students can choose between delivering their written work in English or Dutch.
Students will make a final choice for the English-only or Dutch/English language track after three semesters and will be assisted in this choice by their mentor and study adviser. Their diploma-supplement will show one of either varieties.
The Bachelor's in Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology takes three years. Each academic year consists of two semesters of approximately 20 weeks of college each - from September till the end of January, and from February till the end of June - and includes 60 ECTS credits.
