About the Graduate Program

grad landing page

The Graduate Program in Anthropology includes two tracks:

Distinguished faculty in these areas enable the program to attract outstanding graduate students who excel in national research grant competitions. Students find a supportive environment, accessible faculty, and superb research resources.Most students enter directly into the Ph.D. program and earn a Master of Arts (M.A.) degree along the way after completing the necessary courses and paper work. Some students enter the Ph.D. program with a Masters degree in hand and may apply to transfer up to 24 credits from graduate anthropology courses taken elsewhere in the last six years. Students may also apply to the Master's program, either making an M.A. their ultimate or "terminal" goal, or reapplying to the Ph.D. program after completion of the M.A.
