The master's degree in Social and Cultural Anthropology: Cultural Differences and Transnational Processes (CREOLE) is the first official international joint master's degree in Spain offering both solid training in modern social and cultural anthropology and a unique interuniversity mobility experience.

The purpose of this two-year master's programme is to train researchers specialising in the study of cultural differences, transnational processes and new forms of identity, while at the same time providing solid and competitive training in three main areas of specialisation: New Identities, Material Culture and Consumption, and Visual Culture and Popular Culture.

The master's degree is the result of the collaboration of the anthropology departments of six European universities: Universität Wien, Austria; Universität Bern, Switzerland; Maynooth University, Ireland; Université Lumière Lyon 2, France; Univerza v Ljubljani, Slovenia; Uniwersytet im. Adama Mickiewicza w Poznaniu, Poland; and the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain.
