Anthropology, M.A.

  • Application Deadline
  • 24 months
    Duration
University rank #190 (WUR) ,
Anthropology is dedicated to documenting and understanding human beings. It takes as its starting proposition the idea that we can only reach such an understanding by studying people wherever and whenever they have occurred and from both a cultural and biological perspective.

About

In the Department of Anthropology at the University of Western Ontario, graduate students are trained to observe human behaviour and social practices of the past and present, to collect data, to reflect on what has actually, as well as apparently occurred, to research the context, to apply various explanatory models critically and to adopt a broad perspective for framing an understanding of the chosen research topic. Whatever the topic of research, anthropologists share a particular holistic vision that requires using a repertoire of methods in order to forge a deeper understanding of situations. This holism characterizes the best anthropology and imparts the perspective for which the profession is valued.
