Master’s Programs in Sociology and Social Anthropology, 2014/2015



“ I did my first master’s degree in digital and
media editing and publishing and my interest in
digital anthropology led me to choose the CEU
Department of Sociology and Social Anthropolgy
for a second degree. The professors here are very
good and dedicated and they helped me transition
into my newly chosen field. From the time I chose
my thesis topic-Chinese TV dating shows-
professors have been extremely supportive and
helped me frame my topic and guide my writing
style. I was also extremely lucky to have financial
support from the department for my research
trip to Beijing, where I conducted interviews and
observed show auditions. ”
