The Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology offers an integrated program  aiming to go beyond the disciplinary boundaries between sociology and anthropology, asking new questions about social analysis, regionalizations, and of sociology and anthropology as disciplines.
The department is committed to a non-Eurocentric perspective. By analyzing the complex process of globalization at both the macro- and micro-level, students learn to recognize the global and the local as mutually constitutive processes.
They are further equipped with a critical and comparative perspective on our contemporary world through a broad range of courses: social theory; place making; post-colonialism; research methods; urban processes; meanings and practices of gender; social inequalities; dynamics of power and resistance; and the cross-border flow of people, ideas and commodities within the structures of the globalizing world.
In addition to CEU’s resources, the department draws upon an international network of scholars, providing students with the opportunity to broaden their intellectual horizons.
