Study programme

The Master's programme consists of three stages: In the first phase you deepen your knowledge of anthropological theory while you design your research project. In the following phase you conduct your research project. In the final phase you write your thesis based on your research material. In all three stages you will be supervised by a member of the academic teaching staff.

First semester

In the first semester you focus on anthropological theory, find your partner organization and prepare the applied research that you will conduct.

Therefore you start with the courses Key Debates in Anthropology (8 ECTS) and Designing Applied Fieldwork (12 ECTS). Meanwhile you prepare for your applied fieldwork in a small group with students that will research a similar topic in your Tutorial group (4ECTS). In January, at the end of the first semester, you make a start with your research project: Fieldwork Applied Anthropology (15 ECTS).

Second semester

In the second semester you complete your Fieldwork Applied Anthropology (15 ECTS). Upon returning from ‘the field’, you start writing your thesis. Your thesis consists of both an academic thesis as well as a report written specifically for the partner organisation. One of the challenges is how to maintain the mind-shifting qualities of anthropology while making your knowledge more applicable.  You will be supported in planning and writing your thesis during the course Thesis seminar Writing Applied Anthropology (6 ECTS) while receiving individual guidance from your supervisor.
