Program Description:

The Anthropology graduate program at the University of Florida is designed to accommodate two types of students: those who wish to ground themselves in the traditional four fields of American Anthropology (Biological Anthropology, Archeology, Cultural Anthropology, and Anthropological Linguistics); and those who prefer to combine Anthropology with some other field of study. In terms of the number of faculty specialists, our department is particularly strong in Cultural Anthropology and Archeology (in addition to our own faculty, the archaeologists at the Florida Museum of Natural History supervise students and teach courses). In terms of world areas, we are strong in (but not limited to) Latin America/Caribbean, Africa, and Southeast USA. Our course menu permits a solid grounding in theory, in qualitative and quantitative methods, and in applied anthropology.
