For admittance to the master’s program applicants need to fulfill the following admission requirements:

  • Bachelor’s degree with at least 60 credit points in ethnology or social or cultural anthropology or an equivalent degree.

  • Proof of English language skills (level B2 CEFR).

The admission is limited.

The DSH - or German Language University Entrance Exam for Foreign Students - is obligatory for all applicants whose first language is not German and who have earned their initial degree from a university (or equivalent institution) where the language of instruction is not German.

Students do not pay any tuition fees, the university only charges semester fees and contributions each semester.

The program provides students with the ability to do independent academic work and to analyze complex sociocultural configurations and processes. The program offers a differentiated engagement with theoretical questions that combine micro- and macrolevels and integrate social, cultural, and political-economic perspectives. Regional knowledge of Asian and African countries as well as an emphasis on international experience in the framework of a project to be carried out independently underscore the significance that the program places on intercultural understanding.
