Graduate Studies

The Department of Anthropology offers doctoral training anthropology designed to provide the theoretical background and the methodological skills necessary for a career in professional research and teaching anthropology at the university level, and for the application of anthropological knowledge to contemporary problems.

We offer the following programs:

Despite the small variations in requirements for each program, the only degree title is "Anthropology," and we assume all students will become familiar with a very wide range of anthropological issues and methods. Of course, any department has interests and strengths which are not captured in a list of its requirements. Prospective students are urged to review the page on our faculty and its research interests reached from the People link. Titles of completed Ph.D. dissertations over the years are available on the Doctoral Alumni page.
