About Social and Cultural Anthropology at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

Deepen your knowledge of society's dynamics

Are you captivated by how people interact in today's global societies? Do you want to deepen your knowledge of the dynamics in our society? Are you fascinated by the tensions between economic, political and social hierarchies that often create inequalities and diversity challenges?

You'll explore all these issues and more if you follow the Master's programme in Social and Cultural Anthropology at VU Amsterdam.

During this one-year programme, you'll learn and apply anthropological theories to issues such as social inequality and cultural diversity. You'll then immediately put that into practice during a three-month fieldwork research project.

Entry requirements

You can apply to the Master's programme in Social and Cultural Anthropology (SCA) with a Bachelor's degree in Anthropology, Sociology, or a related field, or if you have completed a minor in Anthropology.

NUFFIC regularly compares universities around the world in order to estimate academic levels of the universities abroad in relation to the acquired level of the Master's programmes in the Netherlands. The Admissions Committee relies on the list provided by NUFFIC in order to estimate whether your level of academic writing and methodological training is expected to be sufficient. If your level of academic writing and/or methodological training is deemed insufficient, you must complete a bridging programme which consist of courses in academic writing and/or methods and techniques. You may decide to take this course at any university. FSS-VU offers courses in academic writing in the pre-Master's programme in Social and Cultural Anthropology (PM Tutorial Academic Writing SCA and PM Research Project SCA) and in methods and techniques.
