The MA programme in social and cultural anthropology is designed for people with a BA degree who are curious about the world and mankind, human interaction and cultural diversity, and the issues of the modern world – inequality, globalisation, identity politics etc.
The aim is to qualify people to work in the areas that require an understanding of human behaviour and cultural diversity, including public offices, business, education, medicine, regional politics, cultural heritage, urban planning, and social welfare. Due to the holistic quality of the discipline, social and cultural anthropology is also an excellent choice for preparing the student for continuous academic endeavours either in anthropology or in any of the other human or social sciences.
The MA programme in social and cultural anthropology is an open programme that accepts students from all disciplines and promotes interdisciplinary studies, drawing on the larger resources of the Estonian Institute of Humanities, the Institute of History and Tallinn University.
