Questions about language, traditions, culture patterns and diversity are very popular in the modern society today, and a Master in Anthropology deals with them beautifully. The qualities to outline the borders of Anthropology are vast, and there are many sub-fields and further branches that overlap and result in fascinating interdisciplinary studies. Biological, Physical, Social, and Cultural Anthropology as well as Anthropological Linguistics are the examples that demonstrate the diversity of the available Master in Anthropology programs one would like to consider.

Master in Anthropology programs are not only about language, culture and traditions but also about preserving artifacts for future generations in museums, for instance. Programs like Master in Culture Study or Master in Social Anthropology explore the nature of human communication, as well as linguistic and cultural changes that occur across time and space. A Master in Anthropology will give anyone great opportunities to travel and communicate with people all around the world, explore art and solve puzzles and mysteries that at times are more thrilling than a first-rate detective story!

The master of arts program in Anthropology and Social Change is unique among graduate programs in the United States due to its focus on activism and social justice. We recognize social movements as a key location of knowledge production alongside that of the university. The mission of the M.A. program is to generate a dialogue among agents active in these two locations of knowledge production. Our intention is to establish a particular kind of institutional space where social movement activists immersed in organizing would meet scholars primarily engaged in theoretical work. The program, inspired in part by the vision of the Popular University of Social Movements, proposed by the Portuguese academic and activist Boaventura de Sousa Santos, is envisioned as a space of translation of academic and grassroots knowledge and experiences, produced in the encounter among social scientists, artists, and activists from the Bay Area. The M.A. in Anthropology and Social Change provides students with an opportunity to simultaneously engage with the world of prefigurative social struggles and with the world of social science and radical theory. As our program is located in an area that is unique in terms of diversity and richness of social struggles, we encourage students to establish a relationship with local social justice groups, organizations, movements, and campaigns. Activist research with a focus on concrete utopia makes this investigative experience rewarding both for students and for the local community. -

The MSc in Ecology and Evolution is a combination of in-depth training and the opportunity for designing a tailor-made program in ecology and evolution. In our program, students form collaborative cohorts and frequently interact with their supervisors & teachers. They also receive coaching from a personal mentor. They can participate in a broad spectrum of research projects, tailored to the individual preferences of the student, ranging from microbes to whales, and from molecules to ecosystems. Research can be conducted in the field or in the lab and theoretically as well as experimentally. There are also opportunities to conduct fieldwork in diverse environments (on all five continents), including the nearby Wadden Sea (on the UNESCO World Heritage list) and the arctic regions. We offer a double degree for the track Evolutionary Biology with the universities of Uppsala, Montpellier or Munich. Besides that, our faculty is the home of the 2016 Nobel laureate in Chemistry, Ben Feringa, and GELIFES is the home of the 2014 Spinoza Prize winner, Theunis Piersma. -

Physical Anthropology is a Knowledge Area within Biological Sciences that studies human diversity and its closest relatives, non-human primates. Its main objective is to provide a comprehensive vision of the mechanisms that generate variability in its evolutionary, ecological, ontogenetic and gender aspects, a vision that also allows us to assess the biological consequences of recent environmental change (including that related to value systems and behaviors) on biological processes and patterns of health and disease in human populations. -
