Institut für Ethnologie 3



Two of the four chairs in social and cultural anthropology in Heidelberg –  Prof. Hornbacher and Prof. Sprenger – are lodged at the Institute of Anthropolohy, as well as the programme coordinators for the BA and MA, the examination office, the office for internships and for the Erasmus exchange programme and the student representatives. Most of the teaching, as well as departmental seminars and film showings take place at the institute. Our exchange programme with Indonesia offers our students opportunities for studying and acquiring experiences in ethnographic field research abroad. The Department currently has about  700 students.
