Our programs develop first-rate anthropologists who are ready to work in colleges, universities, museums, and many applied fields. We provide students with rigorous coursework in archaeology, biological anthropology, sociocultural anthropology, and linguistic anthropology. In addition to our PhD program, the department offers a master's degree in heritage studies & public history, which focuses on archaeological methods and theory. We also offer a graduate minor in anthropology.

What sets our program apart?
Our department is distinguished by its emphasis on developing a strong intellectual community. We foster this community through student-led, faculty-guided brown bag sessions, reading groups, and colloquia series in each of the doctoral subfields. As a department, we have a strong commitment to connect and integrate graduate seminars and coursework to broader conversations within and beyond the department.
