Anthropology and Ethnography
The Masters Degree in Anthropology and Ethnography is designed to achieve two basic objectives:
- To produce researchers specializing in anthropological research who are able to work in specialized and interdisciplinary teams. This makes the course a natural progression route for students who wish to undertake doctoral studies in Social Anthropology.
- To provide students with tools to analyse and interpret primarily by applying the ethnographic method the most significant phenomena and problems affecting contemporary society, such as unemployment, migration, consumption, ethnic conflicts, social exclusion, religion, and changes in family relationships.
- Ability to use theoretical and conceptual tools to analyse and interpret complex socio-cultural phenomena.
- Ability to collect, organize, process and analyse information from various sources within the framework of anthropological research projects.
- Ability to design projects and action plans aimed at identifying or solving specific problems.
- Ability to provide an analytical framework for understanding inequality and social exclusion.
- Ability to understand ethnographic methodology and apply it in different research contexts to make original contributions.
- Ability to identify, based on an ethnographic approach, the patterns that underlie social discourses and practices related to cultural diversity and citizenship.
- Ability to identify and provide methodological tools for the design and conduct of ethnographic research.
- Ability to provide theoretical tools to understand current transformations affecting family and kinship relations.
- Ability to analyse and understand logical alternative economic practices in the context of contemporary society.
- Ability to provide a theoretical framework for the analysis and understanding of processes for expressing ethno-political and social demands that allow for the interplay of local and global variables.
