What sets us apart

We develop first-rate anthropologists to accept positions in higher education, museums, business, and applied fields. We provide doctoral-level training in archaeology, biological anthropology, and sociocultural anthropology. In addition, we offer some seminars in linguistic anthropology. We also offer a graduate minor in anthropology.

We have affiliations with the University of Minnesota College of Design's Master of Heritage Studies & Public History program, which offers a master's degree (including a track in archaeological heritage) and a graduate minor, with an emphasis on professional non-academic practice.
