The Department of Anthropology at the University of Regina offers a Master’s program on a special case basis only. Because we do not have a standardized Master’s Program, we design an individualized program for each student, consisting of five approved classes and a thesis topic. 


Why to study

Our special case program in Anthropology at theUniversity of Regina  is well suited for self-motivated learners who wish to explore in-depth a particular aspect of social, cultural, or linguistic anthropology with two or more of our faculty members. We are especially interested in applicants whose interests overlap with those of our faculty.

Currently, our department has five regular faculty members, all of whom are socio-cultural anthropologists. Our small size prevents us from offering a broad program, or guaranteeing that you will have the benefit of studying with other graduate students in anthropology. Nonetheless, we will soon have three MA students, and a pledge of some financial resources to sustain them—at least one research and teaching assistantship per year. We are eager to have more graduate students, and encourage you to informally discuss your interests with us at an early stage, since you cannot make a formal application without first negotiating a program of study with us.
