About

The PhD in Anthropology, Global Studies and the Study of Religion programme at Aarhus University draws on well-established research and teaching in European and Asian Studies, the Middle East, Africa, and the circumpolar regions.

Overview

  • Drawing on internationally well-established research environments based in the fields of Anthropology, International Area Studies, and the Study of Religion, a particular strength of the PhD programme is interdisciplinarity. Strong research environments dedicated to exploring and integrating methods from beyond the Humanities, e.g. in the study of culture, cognition and religion as well as in human security and international development, offer students unique opportunities for the pursuit of new directions in and across the associated disciplines. At the same time, strong individual research environments ensure disciplinary training at the highest levels.
  •  Collaborations with institutions in the respective regions and with leading universities in Australia, across Europe and North America provide extensive opportunities for international research and training.
  • Theoretical interests are founded on a combination of solid social and human science theories, and range from phenomenology, post-structuralism and grounded theory over various comparative, sociological and historically-based approaches to cognitive science.
  • All B-level courses of the study programme will be available in English. The programme is affiliated with the national PhD education networks for Anthropology, International Area Studies and the Study of Religion.

  • In the context of collaborations with researchers in the cognitive neuro- and behavioral sciences in the context of MindLab some PhD projects draw on the world-class experimental facilities at AU.
