Applications deadline September 10, 2017

In March 2017, the Institute of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań (AMU) became a part the CREOLE Network on „Cultural Differences and Transnational Processes" within which a new Master's Program in Anthropology in English was launched. The Master's Program has a strong focus on changes and challenges that take place in Central and Eastern Europe but is also open to other issues of contemporary societies around the world. Participation in the CREOLE network makes it possible for our MA students to take part in an exchange between Institutes and Departments of Anthropology in Europe and spend up to two semesters in places, such as Maynooth, Ireland; Vienna, Austria; Lyon, France; Stockholm, Sweden; Bern, Switzerland; Ljubljana, Slovenia, Barcelona, Spain.

The Master's Program in Anthropology, being focused on changes taking place in formerly socialist countries of Central and Eastern Europe, will be of particular interest to postgraduates with such regional interests. Our postgraduate students will learn how to independently conduct ethnographic research, critically reflect on the pending issues of our time and intervene in them through academic research and public engagement. We will give our students an opportunity to develop their research skills and extend the range of the methods at their disposal, by offering also advanced training in visual media.

In the Master's Program you will:

Gain an understanding of anthropological approaches to urgent societal changes in CEE and beyond,

Learn ethnographic research methods and anthropological theories applicable to the study of international migration, populism, medicine, economic growth, environment, and energy,

Develop problem-solving skills and ability to provide policy and program recommendations,

Study anthropology abroad in one of the CREOLE network institutions.

The Master's Program in Anthropology is research oriented. The program offers an opportunity to conduct ethnographic research in Poland and other countries, especially in the CEE region. The program will prepare students for doctoral studies as well as careers in public policy, civil society and community organizing, journalism and visual media, public administration, social work, and education. Getting a master's degree in Anthropology will equip students with data and practical skills to deal with the challenges and to embrace the opportunities of todays' changing societies.
