Masters program at the Department of Cultural Anthropology and Ethnology

Master Degree with a concentration in Ethnology

The Master degree training in ethnology is offered as a one year or two year course of study. Students take obligatory courses in ethnology as well as elective courses in other departments and/or faculties. In addition to courses offered on campus in Uppsala and Visby, students can take Internet-based courses. Students may also carry out an internship as part of their training. In addition to these opportunities, students may take advantage of the department’s Swedish and international networks to establish contacts with other universities.

Master Degree with a concentration in Cultural Anthropology

We also offer a Master degree in anthropology within the framework of the Faculty of Humanities’ International Masters Programme. This course of study offers students an opportunity to study in an international context where approximately one half of the students come from abroad. The diversity of student backgrounds contributes to the richness of the educational environment. In addition to enrolling in obligatory courses in anthropology at the department, Masters students have opportunities to select courses at other departments within the university, to enroll for a semester at another university in Europe or further abroad, and to carry out an internship. While most students choose to complete a two year degree, it is also possible to follow a one-year course of study.
