PhD in Anthropology and Sociology IHEID
Graduate Institute (IHEID) Within international and development studies, anthropology and sociology are indispensable for the comparative study of global concerns in both margins and centres of power, and across their boundaries. The PhD in Anthropology and Sociology aims to provide students with theoretical perspectives and methodological tools to explore the social and cultural systems that influence, and are influenced by, policy interventions, especially – but not exclusively – in the field of development and international affairs.
Our four-year doctoral program is tailored for students with a strong commitment to anthropology and sociology and a demonstrated capacity for independent research work. Through the foundational doctoral seminar, a weekly departmental seminar series, and further opportunities to participate in cross-departmental colloquia, we offer a vibrant and welcoming intellectual community for PhD students.

Culture and Change - Critical Studies in the Humanities, Master's Programme (Two-Year)
School of Arts and Communication, University Malmö This programme is specifically designed to provide you with the skills, confidence, and qualifications to work in cultural production, cultural administration and enterprise, particularly in ways that are aware and ethically responsible.
Culture and change: critical studies in the humanities is a two-year master’s programme aimed at students interested in better understanding various cultural phenomena, both past and present. The programme will encourage you to think expansively and creatively about how culture is produced and reproduced, and why it is still contested terrain. We explore and ask questions about issues of power, representation, memory, silence, and place. The programme will help you to bridge theory and practice, and to develop research interests in collaboration with external stakeholders. If you have ever considered working in the arts, policy-making, cultural administration, or even pursuing a PhD, this might be the ideal programme for you.
