Subject-Specific Student Advisory Services

B.A.  Social and Cultural Anthropology

Subject advisor Dr. Jonathan DeVore answers your questions concerning the B.A. program. In the 4th semester, we recommend that our bachelor's students agree on an appointment with the study advisory in order to clarify specific questions concerning the second half of the study program and the B.A. thesis.

M.A. Social and Cultural Anthropology

For questions about planning and organizing your studies (one and two-subject study programmes), Dr. Simon Holdermann can help you.

Dr. Alexander van Wickeren can help you with questions concerning the one-subject M.A. Programme in combination with the a.r.t.e.s. Research Master Programme.

M.A. Culture & Environment in Africa (CEA)

Subject advisor for the M.A. Program Culture & Environment in Africa (CEA) is Dr. Hauke-Peter Vehrs

Professional Practice B.A. and M.A.

Under the B.A. program, acquiring profession-oriented work experience through internships is part of the elective modul on ethnological knowledge in research and professional practice ("Ergänzungsmodul – Ethnologisches Wissen in der Forschungs- und Berufspraxis"). If you are a master student of cultural and social anthropology, a professional internship is a voluntary, self-organized achievement. Dr. Hauke-Peter Vehrs supervises the internships.

Study Abroad

The module 'Study Abroad' is part of the elective module 2 ("Ergänzungsmodul 2") under the B.A. and M.A. program. Questions concerning University partnerships, requirements, application process and funding opportunities answers Dr. Charlotte Bruckermann

PhD in Social and Cultural Anthropology

With questions concering the organization of your PhD  Dr. Gerda Kuiper is happy to help you. 

KLIPS Support

By using KLIPS 2.0, the campus management system of the University of Cologne, all students have to administer their study programmes on their own. You can fix most of the KLIPS-problems yourself by carefully reading the “Online-KLIPS-Support for Students”, first! In particular you should study the page “Transferring Credits”, where you can learn how to transfer “active participation credits” to different modules.

If there are still some problems left, you are welcome to contact Dr. Eva Fuhrmann during her consultation hours

For recognition of external achievements please contact your subject advisor.

Special offer in case of discrimination

Please contact the Working Group Antidiscrimination if you are confronted with discrimination of any form in studying and teaching Social and Cultural Anthropology.
