Anthropology is the study of human beings in time and space. The Masters in Anthropology (MAAN) programme is based on an integrated approach to the subject which incorporates insights from physical, social and archaeological anthropology. The programme attempts to provide an in-depth understanding which involves a holistic approach of Anthropology using theoretical and practical techniques.
Masters in Anthropology aims to develop professional competence among students in view of the perceivable need for trained anthropologists in academic and research institutes, NGOs, government organisations and applied sciences. It would also equip the learners to employ anthropological insights to understand and relate contemporary bio-social shifts.
