Studies in Cultural Anthropology guide the students to understand culture as a force that is connected to its environment, has evolved historically, and is constantly changing. Simultaneously, Cultural Anthropology strives to improve the student's ability to analyse the relationship between individuals and their cultures. 

Students of Cultural Anthropology at Oulu will first complete a Bachelor of Arts degree, followed by a Master of Arts degree. This education prepares the students for postgraduate studies.

Cultural Anthropology and Archaeology share common basic studies at Oulu. After the completion of this initial level, the students will move on to the intermediate and advanced studies in Cultural Anthropology. 

As a minor subject, Cultural Anthropology complements well many other fields in the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Natural Sciences.

Doctoral education in Cultural Anthropology is part of the University of Oulu Graduate School (UniOGS).
