Cultural Anthropology and European Anthropology

Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) – 2 field degree program - Minor Field


How did people organize and shape their day-to-day lives and coexistence in Europe? How do everyday life and ways of living differ in various cultures? The Bachelor degree in Cultural Anthropology and European Ethnology focuses on these questions. Cultural Anthropology is the study of people in relation to their culture. European Ethnology deals with the ways of living and lifeworlds of European societies.

Taking as its principle “anthropology at home”, Cultural Anthropology and European Ethnology studies cultural phenomena and processes, everyday practices and lifeworlds in modern European societies. This includes for example eating and drinking culture, leisure activities, religious practices and rituals, involvement in sport or the media, subcultures, moral concepts and much more.

On this degree program you can learn a lot, if you are interested in all kinds of cultural phenomena and the diversity of human coexistence. On the Bachelor in Cultural Anthropology and European Ethnology you will acquire a wide range of skills in relation to the various social, political and economic forms in which people organize their lives together.

The field of European ethnology focuses on scientific study of the everyday cultures of the “many” in Europe, the members of the middle and lower classes. European ethnology deals with cultures in the sense of human interpretation and orientation systems in spaces of various sizes (local cultures, regional cultures, cultures of large regions of Europe such as the Mediterranean, the Alps, the Baltic states, etc.). It is a core belief of the field that cultures can not be defined by ethnicity alone and that it is necessary to take a critical stance against an ethnicization of culture. Research and instruction focus on the coexistence of people of various ethnic background, migratory movements, integration processes, and the relation between majorities and minorities.
