Our master of arts (MA) program in anthropology can serve as a stepping stone for further study in a doctoral program or as a final degree preparing you for a professional career. It’s designed to be a general degree, with course work covering both anthropological theory and current trends in three major subfields: cultural, biological, and archaeology.
Anthropology MA Thesis and NonThesis Option
This program will give you a broad foundation in anthropology while also allowing you to specialize in a particular area of the discipline. All of our faculty members conduct research in a variety of specialization areas. As a graduate student in our department, you’ll work alongside our expert faculty and staff as we guide you in the area of your choice.
Our MA graduates often go on to doctoral study that can lead to careers in teaching and academic research, while many former students enter careers in archaeological resources management, museum work, or other types of applied anthropology using the practices and theory of anthropology to address real-world human problems.
