Program Description:

Anthropology graduate students must demonstrate a broad factual and theoretical background in the principal subfields of anthropology, an authoritative knowledge of a special field of research, a thorough grasp of research methods, and refined critical judgment. In Anthropology, the Master’s and doctoral degrees are synergistically related with respect to collectively describing a common trajectory of post-baccalaureate training that emphasizes increasing independence of thought and action within the context of directed training in the classroom, laboratory, and the field. Our graduate curriculum has been developed (and is continually revised and updated) with an eye toward providing students balanced, in-depth exposure to the full range of anthropological inquiry. As such, our learning strategies at the graduate level focus on creating competent, independent thinkers capable of advancing knowledge within the context of approaches that combine the best of traditional classroom and laboratory instruction with the deployment of cutting-edge pedagogical technologies and learning strategies including internships and practica.
