Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology


About this minor

Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology is a social science. Anthropologists investigate the ways in which people give meaning to different aspects of their life and the way they interact with each other, by looking at issues of diversity, gender, religion, economic and political behaviour, and use of (social) media. Students get acquainted with anthropological approaches to studying society by learning about (and practicing with) its research methods and its modes of representation.
