The focus of the Master Program of the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology (LMU) is research. The students can develop, realise and analyse own research projects. The main thematic fields are: visual anthropology, the society-environment nexus, urban studies, anthropology of politics, media anthropology, migration and diaspora, ethnicity and identity, and cyberanthropology. Regionally, research focuses especially on South Asia, the Americas, Africa, Europe and the Pacific. We are the only anthropology department in the German language area that specializes on research in Pakistan, particularly in Gilgit-Baltistan.
