Master's Programme CREOLE: Cultural Differences and Transnational Processes, 120 credits

About the education

CREOLE is a specialized master’s program that provides a comprehensive education in social anthropology. It addresses three main areas: transnational processes, cultural differences and visual culture.

The program includes an exchange component in which students spend two terms abroad at one, or two, of the partner universities: Université Lumière Lyon 2 (France), Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (Spain), National University of Ireland-Maynooth (Republic of Ireland), Universität Wien (Austria), and Univerza v Ljubljani (Slovenia). Studies are flexible and allow for the creation of individual programs tailored to each student’s interests.

The master’s thesis comprises one semester (30 credits) and is preceded by a period of fieldwork. The subject of the thesis is freely chosen within the overarching theme of the program and is decided upon in consultation with the thesis advisor.

Subject: Social Anthropology

Anthropology deals with the entire range of human social and cultural phenomena in places ranging from corporate boardrooms and think tanks in major cities, to rural markets and war zones in the hinterlands of globalisation. Anthropology inquires into the different ways in which societies are organised and how people make sense of the worlds in which they live. In short, anthropology asks what it means to be human.

The Department of Social Anthropology at Stockholm University is a world-leading research institution. Our courses and programs reflect the Department’s commitment to understanding people, ideas, and objects in situ, and how they travel across political and cultural borders, challenging, reinforcing or redrawing them in the process.

Area of interest: Human, Social and Political Sciences, and Law

Are you interested in human beings and society? How we function individually and together, what drives us, our learning processes, how rules and laws have been established, and how we interact with each other? If that is the case we have a lot to offer.

This area of interest covers anything from Pedagogy, Psychology and Gender Studies, to Statistics, Political Science, Law and many other subjects. Their common denominator is the relation between human beings and society, independent analytical thinking and often an international perspective.
