The Poznań Ethnology is one of the oldest and best institutions in the country in the field of ethnological sciences. Two-year master's studies in English in the field of social and cultural anthropology are conducted as part of the international program CREOLE (Cultural Differences and Transnational Processes). These studies mainly focus on the changes and challenges of Central and Eastern Europe, but also address issues in contemporary societies in other regions of the world.

Master’s degree in CREOLE provide graduates with specialized humanistic education and a broad knowledge of cultural phenomena, the organization and functioning of culture, the significance of its individual elements, and the historical variability of forms. These studies shape humanistic attitudes necessary for intercultural cooperation with institutions responsible for the protection of tangible and intangible heritage, skills in working with and animating various groups (social, religious, professional), and also in proposing their own ideas.
The studies prepare students for professional work in cultural, educational, tourism, and media institutions, as well as in areas where social research is conducted (advertising, marketing), and where the ability to interact with others is needed (local governments and local communities, cultural borderlands, work with refugees and immigrants).
