As an interdisciplinary department that combines Anthropology, Human Geography and Sociology, we are proud to offer both a PhD and MA in Global and Sociocultural Studies. Our department's faculty and graduate students specialize in research on three core, interlocking themes:
- Identities and Inequalities
- Migrations and Diasporas
Both the MA and PhD programs draw on the strength of our faculty members' interdisciplinary commonalities, while also allowing students to gain a strong foundation in either Anthropology, Geography, or Sociology.
