Studies in Social and Cultural Anthropology form a holistic entity in which anthropology’s central research topics and perspectives provide a basis for examining modern questions about society and culture.


The goal of introductory studies is to offer a general historical and theoretical overview of anthropology which will help students to approach topics and research problems in later courses from an anthropological point of view.

Intermediate subject studies deal with the core content of anthropology in courses which focus on the central research fields of the discipline. These courses, or Faculty Examinations corresponding to them, are completed as a part of intermediate and advanced subject studies.

Currently,  social and cultural anthropology are taught within new degree programs called “Society and Change” and “Contemporary Societies”, below you can find the university’s WebOodi course catalogues to these degrees.
