Master’s Program in Anthropology of Central and Eastern Europe

at the Institute of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology of the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, Poland.


Applications will be accepted between March 1 and August 30, 2017.


In January 2017, the Institute of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań (AMU) launched a new Master’s Program in Anthropology of Central and Eastern Europe.


The big challenges of today’s societies – ranging from expanding nationalism, the effects of international migration, the need to contain pandemics and alleviate poverty as well as deal with social and cultural issues – have become an inseparable part of anthropological reflection and study. The Master’s program Anthropology of CEE is focused on changes taking place in formerly socialist countries of Central and Eastern Europe and our offer will be of particular interest to postgraduates with such regional interests. Our postgraduate students will learn how to independently conduct ethnographic research, critically reflect on the pending issues of our time and intervene in them through academic research and public engagement. We will give our students an opportunity to develop their research skills and extend the range of the methods at their disposal, by offering advanced training in visual media.


In the Master’s program you will

  • Gain an understanding of anthropological approaches to urgent societal changes in CEE,
  • Learn ethnographic research methods and anthropological theories applicable to the study of international migration, populism, medicine, economic growth, environment, and energy,
  • Develop problem-solving skills and ability to provide policy and program recommendations.


The Master’s Program in Anthropology of CEE is research oriented. The program offers an opportunity to conduct ethnographic research in Poland and other countries in the CEE region. The program will prepare students for doctoral studies as well as careers in public policy, civil society and community organizing, journalism and visual media, public administration, social work, and education. Getting a master’s degree in Anthropology of CEE will equip students with data and practical skills to deal with the challenges and to embrace the opportunities of todays’ changing societies.
