Graduate Programs

The Department of Anthropology offers the best of both worlds: the intellectual strength of a major research institution and the personalized attention of a small department. Graduate training is based on core courses in the history, theories, and methods of anthropology and opportunities to pursue a wide range of theoretical, ethnographic and archaeological interests. Training for independent research is stressed, with particular emphasis on theoretical issues and fieldwork. 

Graduate Degree Options


Our graduate students specialize in either sociocultural anthropology or anthropological archaeology.
