Study programme

The programme consists of three stages: In the first phase you deepen your knowledge on anthropological theory while you design your research project, in the following phase you conduct your fieldwork and finally you write your thesis on the basis of your research material. In all three stages, you will be supervised individually by a member of the academic teaching staff.

First semester

In the first semester you’ll start with the courses Key Debates in Anthropology (8 ECTS), Designing Fieldwork (12 ECTS), Tutorial groups (4 EC) and make a start with your research project: Ethnographic Fieldwork (15 ECTS).

Second semester

In the second semester you complete your Ethnographic Fieldwork (15 ECTS). Upon returning from ‘the field’, you will start writing your thesis. While writing, you learn to interpret the research results and present experiences in abstract terms. The main challenge is to combine anthropological theory with fieldwork data in a way that is both elegant and effective in presenting your findings. You will be supported in planning and writing your thesis by the course Writing Ethnography (6 ECTs) while also receiving individual guidance from your supervisor.
