The Department of Anthropology offers graduate programs at both the M.A. and Ph.D. levels in sociocultural anthropology, biological anthropology and archaeology.
Maintaining a strong focus on research training, attempts are made to tailor programs to the interests and strengths of individual students in close cooperation with faculty advisors. Abundant research opportunities within the Province of Manitoba are supported by the presence of a wide variety of ethnic groups and a rich record of ancient human settlement.

Universities and colleges as professors or specialists
Health related institutions
Government heritage positions
International Development Research Centre
