The Anthropology program at The City University of New York has a commitment to a four-field approach to graduate training, requiring a substantial background in cultural anthropology (ethnology), physical anthropology, anthropological archaeology and anthropological linguistics, in order to prepare students for flexibility in future careers in research, teaching and related fields.
The entire program is scheduled in the evening, to accommodate students who hold full-time jobs.
Virtually all students who complete the MA program and apply to PhD programs at other institutions are admitted to a program.
A substantial proportion of MA students are accepted in PhD programs before completing requirements for the Hunter MA. Hunter MA students may take courses at the CUNY Graduate Center. Most of the Hunter anthropology faculty are also members of the faculty of the Graduate Center doctoral program in anthropology.
Students are encouraged to participate in faculty research, much of which is externally funded, providing limited opportunities for part-time employment. Scholarships are also available for students in the program to participate in field schools and to conduct field research. Write or email the graduate adviser for further information.
