Master’s (12 to 37 months) and Doctorate (24 to 61 months)

Covering a wide range of aims and fields of inquiry, the program’s ten lines of teaching and research are intended to allow students to gain an understanding of the symbolic and material dimensions of social life, with a view to understanding the cultural, social, political and ideological processes at the interface with the experience of social agents. Conceived in this way, the graduate program in social anthropology has proved to be a fertile space for teaching, research and debate in fields ranging from the ethnographic and historical study of indigenous societies through subjects such as nature and technique, difference and identity, body and sexuality, gender and age, religiosity and media, state and capitalism.
