The Anthropology program of Case Western Reserve University is designed for two groups of students. First, students who enter the program with a BA and wish to obtain a PhD must obtain the MA before being admitted to the PhD program. This is accomplished in three semesters. Second, for those students who wish to obtain only an MA, it is possible to meet degree requirements in one year (two semesters). This program is designed for students who must complete the program in one year because they plan to enter a professional program, such as medical school, the following fall semester.
Requirements for the master’s degree include credit hour requirements, core course requirements, and a six-hour comprehensive written Master of Arts examination. A candidate for the master’s degree is required to complete 30 hours of class work, including an approved statistics course (3 hours) in which the student has earned a grade of C or better. No more than 6 credit hours of electives may be taken in 300-level courses (advanced undergraduate courses). All master’s degree candidates are required to attain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 in the core courses (described below) in order to qualify for the degree.
All master’s degree candidates are required to take the comprehensive written examination before the completion of 30 semester hours of graduate work. Written master’s degree examinations can receive one of three grades: High Pass, Pass, or Fail. “High Pass” signifies performance sufficient for both the Master of Arts degree and advancement to the Doctor of Philosophy program, provided other requirements have also been satisfied. “Pass” signifies performance adequate for the master’s degree but insufficient to enter the doctoral program. “Fail” means a performance inadequate for the master’s degree. In the case of grades of Pass and Fail, the written examination may be retaken once.
