General information

The subject matter of the BA Anthropology is the comparative study of social and cultural difference, and the theories and methods of this and related disciplines. We are especially interested in similarities and differences in social relations. We investigate what happens when culturally specific modes of thought, values and practices are transferred to other contexts.
