Minor

Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology

Why do people do what they do and think what they think? In the minor Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology you will address these questions and study the relationship between global developments and experiences on a local level.

For whom?

For students:

  • who find it interesting to explore other cultures and societies.
  • who are willing to take a close look at their own ideas and (preliminary) judgements.
  • who are interested in the question why people act in certain ways, even if they do or want something which at first sight seems strange - or even reprehensible.
