The Degree Program

Successful completion of the Anthropology program of The University of Montana requires coursework, successful completion of a comprehensive evaluation, and significant original scholarly work.

There are four ways to complete the requirements for the M.A. degree in Anthropology: the general option, the cultural heritage option, the forensic anthropology option, and the linguistic anthropology option. Each of these options offers a different emphasis, which is reflected in the seminars, elective classes, and scholarly work that is required.
