As home to many governmental and non-governmental institutions, Ottawa provides exceptional institutional resources that our students can draw on for their research and career opportunities.
Graduate students in the Anthropology MA course offered by the Carleton University may pursue a placement in one such organization, linking this practical work with their area of interest for their thesis research. The nation’s capital also houses a variety of library, archival and museum collections that provide unique opportunities for those interested in the anthropological study of material culture, art, ethnohistory and historical texts.
Since 2009, with the inauguration of the PhD in Anthropology, Carleton has contributed to the training of professional anthropologists. Alumni are pursuing successful careers with community and development organizations, businesses, universities and governments. Professionals already employed in Ottawa also find that completing an MA part-time can expand their knowledge of cross-cultural issues and provide them with additional expertise to enhance their careers.
