About

Find out more information about Anthropology

Anthropology captures the particularities of human beings and animals, such as the origins, biologic features, social and physical characteristics. This study of humankind aims to understand the existence of the human species throughout history.

Students who enrol in a Master degree in anthropology can specialize in archaeology and biological, linguistic and cultural anthropology. During the programme, they will have the chance to research through techniques and models that also show results in cognitive science and ethnic studies. While in Europe archaeology is seen as an independent discipline, in the U.S.A. it is considered a branch of anthropology.

Anthropology can be applied to any field of the human culture, including family, economy, symbolism, socialism and food customs. Graduates of a Master’s programme in anthropology may continue their research with careers in social science or can find jobs in the public and private sector. Many of the anthropologists built careers as charity officers, market researchers, community development workers, journalists or human resources managers.
