Master's Program in Cultural Anthropology

The MA in Cultural Anthropology is an international degree program taught in English. Our program is set in an international environment with approximately half of the students in the program originating from outside Sweden. This rich diversity contributes to the vitality of the educational experience. Classrooms are small and group work often follows lectures to engage actively in the readings and related topics.
