About

The Masters Program in Anthropology at Florida Atlantic University offers the student an in-depth exposure to biological anthropology, cultural anthropology and archaeology, providing a solid training in theory, methods, and analysis.

Overview

The masters program at Florida Atlantic University offers the student the opportunity to put anthropology into practice, to pursue an intellectual quest, and to creatively and critically construct a research program that reflects the student's particular interests. 

Learning outcomes

Students embark on a 30-credit hour course of study that encompasses anthropological theory, seminars in the subfields of anthropology, advanced training in their chosen subfield, topical courses, and quantitative reasoning.  The coursework provides the foundation for the student's independent and original research for a masters thesis, developed under the supervision of department faculty.  Many of our graduate students, based on the skills and knowledge they acquired at Florida Atlantic University, move on to complete their doctoral work at varied institutions.

Graduate students in the Department of Anthropology develop original research projects for their theses.  The masters thesis is a demonstration of the student's facility with synthesizing anthropological theory and methods into a sustained and persuasive examination of a topic important in anthropology.Graduate students in the Department of Anthropology develop original research projects for their theses.
