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 programme applies deep and broad perspectives to an understanding of social communities and culture as a coherent whole. It provides specialisation in the scholarly approach that is fundamental to students aiming to pursue PhD studies, but which also is valuable for advanced work as a policy or operational officer in organisations and activities at different levels. The programme also provides students with broadened theoretical perspectives, expanded knowledge of qualitative methodology, skills to adapt to changing working life and the ability to contribute to development in society and working life. -

Further, once seemingly homogenous local societies display increasing inner diversity. The study programme helps students develop a thoroughly anthropological approach to the themes of self and agency, gender, state and power, borders/migration, consumerism, art/performance. -
