We develop first-rate anthropologists who are ready to work in colleges, universities, museums, and many applied fields. Our graduate program is one of the best in the nation. We provide you with rigorous coursework to refine your skills, while also providing training within our four subfields of archaeological, biological anthropology, sociocultural anthropology, and linguistic anthropology. We also have opportunities to acquire a more general background in the discipline, either for research purposes or in preparation for a teaching career in which one is expected to offer courses from two or more of the subfields.
What sets our program apart?
Our faculty-led seminars, reading groups, and brown bag sessions, along with graduate discussions, events, and activities, provide our graduate students with an engaging, intellectual, and tight-knit community at the University.
What are our graduates doing?
Many of our PhDs find employment in higher education as well as in medicine, business, law, government, or non-profits. Our MA students studying cultural heritage management often find homes in museums, tourism centers, and non-profits.
