The study programme provides students with a solid base of anthropological knowledge and research skills upon which to build in their later academic or professional career. It covers both the main themes in anthropological theory, economic and political anthropology, as well as anthropology of gender and religion, and thus helps students to develop critical thinking and interdisciplinary analysis skills. The programme is mostly orientated towards public anthropology and the Baltic region, but students are encouraged to develop and explore their own research topics with the support of experienced supervisors within our department.
Our senior programme staff holds doctoral degrees from world’s best ranking universities and are active in the public sphere, encouraging also their students to express their opinions and research results in the mass media.
The progrmme uses its ERASMUS exchange agreements to send students to other European universities and welcomes students from abroad visiting Latvia.
Graduates can pursue further academic studies or a professional career in the public/NGO/ private sector in Latvia and abroad.
