Program Description:

The graduate program in Anthropology represents a broad array of theoretical, geographical, and cultural interests of a faculty distributed over the four fields of Cultural Anthropology, Biological Anthropology, Linguistic Anthropology, and Archaeology.  Special emphasis is on the anthropology of visual communication, archaeology, biological anthropology, gender, history of anthropology, political economy, sociolinguistics, medical anthropology, and urban anthropology. The Ph.D. program is concerned with how people participate in and adapt to processes of change and transformation, both historically and in the contemporary world. Since the faculty view Anthropology as a unified discipline rather than as an aggregate of specializations, the traditional subfields (archaeological, sociocultural, biological, linguistic) are crosscut by research foci (urban anthropology, visual anthropology, gender, medical anthropology, human biology, and the history of anthropology) that expand the scope of study.
