Department of Anthropology and Cultural Research

Institut für Ethnologie und Kulturwissenschaft

Culture is the main focus of teaching and research at the Department of Anthropology and Cultural Research. We´re developing a Science of Mankind in the Modern Era and pursue research-driven Ethnography of the Contemporary World. The Department’s core strengths lie in its interdisciplinary orientation. The BA in Cultural Research is a teaching-based program involving cooperation with the Department of Historic Publishing, Communication and Media Studies. The equally interdisciplinary and research-oriented MA in Transcultural Studies is focused on the question of transcultural relations.
