Why study Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology?
The Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology programme from Leiden University challenges you to explore cultural diversity by seeing the world through other people’s eyes. You will be challenged to dive deep into topics that move you, from climate change to racism, homelessness, or child labour, to name but a few.
At Leiden, there’s also more to being an anthropologist than just reading about people or talking to political elites. We offer a unique mix of theory and practice, with students conducting fieldwork, doing internships, and producing films in the Netherlands and abroad.
What skills will you have?
After finishing your bachelor's programme in Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology, you have a strong understanding of cultural and social differences, experience with different research methods, and knowledge of how to apply these methods to fieldwork.
