Ethnologisches Institut

About us

The Department of Social Anthropology at the University of Freiburg focuses on worldwide social and (trans-)cultural dynamics. Global topics and a broad range of courses on Asia, Africa and Latin America are key to its profile. The Institute is interdisciplinary in its research and teaching and is extremely well networked internationally. Students acquire methodological, theoretical and practical skills that qualify them for a wide range of socially relevant fields of work in the global world. Both the Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes place particular emphasis on direct professional relevance. This is reflected, among other things, in tandem courses with professional practitioners.
