The Master of Arts in Applied Modelling and Quantitative Methods M.A. at Trent University is designed to overcome some of the barriers to interdisciplinary collaboration by bringing together, at the graduate level, students who are actively applying modelling techniques in their thesis research in a broad range of disciplines. The research is in the social and natural sciences, and in fields in which Trent has demonstrated strong research performance. Although it is oriented towards quantitative models, utilizing computational, mathematical or statistical techniques, it is discipline-based and is not a program in applied mathematics.
At Trent, your experience will be based on the Anthropology graduate program’s more than 40-year track record of educational excellence, and inspired by real-life learning. Three full-year courses and the research required for the completion of a thesis will see you explore the complexities of human biology and culture. Consider topics of societal importance through archaeological, biological, ethnographic, or linguistic research. Faculty members and students before you have undertaken fieldwork across Canada, in the U.S. southwest, in Mesoamerica, the Mediterranean, South and Southeast Asia, and Papua New Guinea. Their investigations have focused on mortuary practices, forensics, settlement patterns, civilization collapse, art, religion, and much more.
