The content of the Anthropology MA programme is focused on developing an understanding of what does it mean to be a human in the world, from a comparative perspective. Our courses and projects examine issues pertaining to the relativity of world-views as well as specific cultural practices and place them in a global context. This is primarily carried out through analysing ethnographic texts and anthropological films in a seminar setting.

Many of the courses address issues like capitalism, globalisation, anthropological cinema, anthropology of perception, amongst others. All students carry out their own anthropological study in close collaboration with a supervisor.

The Anthropology Programme at Tallinn University offers an MA degree conducted in English. The Audiovisual Ethnography Module allows researchers to produce audiovisual materials as part of their final projects. Researchers interested in pursuing doctoral studies in Anthropology at TLU can do so within the Studies of Cultures programme.
