It is often said that Anthropology is the most human of the Sciences and the most scientific of the Humanities.

It is in accordance with this idea that we offer our students a rare opportunity in the panorama of Higher Education: to be initiated into a disciplinary field that, at the crossroads of History and Sociology, Philosophy, Art and Science, dedicately cultivates the will to learn about the social organization, ways of life, beliefs and cosmologies of other groups, peoples and cultures of the planet. Only in this way, by learning what it means to be human, are we able to share the challenges of the present and the freedom to imagine the future..

The quality of the Bachelor in Anthropology within the School of Human and Social Sciences at Iscte is ensured by its diverse body of instructors with substantial teaching and research experience, as well as its various collaborations with researchers from other Portuguese and international higher education institutions.

We offer a first cycle (undergraduate) degree which furnishes its graduates with the skills to understand the complex world in which we live, as well as to face the challenges of the labour market.

We are also committed to the establishment of partnerships with various institutions and relevant organizations which will enable students to engage in internships at the end of their courses.

Director(s) message

Francisco Oneto

The starting point of Anthropology is, on the one hand, the study of the diversity of cultures, of the different forms of life and existence that human groups engage in, and, on the other, the study of that which is common to all Humankind.

Anthropology plays a crucial educational role in the contemporary world, presenting fresh insights, based on fieldwork, on knowledge that is produced together with the people with whom anthropologists study. It encompasses diverse research areas, such as art, science, politics, economics, religion, gender, ethnicity, the environment, or the complex relationships that are shaping human and non-human destinies in the Anthropocene.

Studying Anthropology is a way of opening ourselves up to the world and of becoming aware of the different cosmologies that our discipline has recorded for over a century all across the globe. This allows for the critical attitude that is so needed for true citizenship, intercultural dialogue, and the imagination of the future.

This is the experience we have to offer and that we want to share with our students.
