The Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology offers innovative MA and PhD programs that integrate both disciplines while accommodating a diversity of theoretical perspectives. Our combination of Sociology and Social Anthropology leads to insightful and groundbreaking research, presenting multi-scalar and critical perspectives on current social issues. We are committed to both academic excellence and socially conscious scholarship. Our areas of research and teaching include migration studies, postcolonialism, urbanism, political and economic sociology, sociology of culture, development, network analysis, anthropology of religion, visual anthropology, and sociology of gender and sexuality.

We welcome visitors during our Fall and Winter semesters through various programs, such as ERASMUS mobilities, Doctoral Support Program, or Marie Curie Mobility.
