The MA in Anthropology - Medical Anthropology from University of Colorado Denver draws on all of the perspectives that distinguish anthropology as a unique discipline: the analysis of human evolution and adaptation; cultural development, expressions, and variability; and historical change and continuity.
Medical anthropology takes as its subject a broad range of specific topics, including the study of health care systems, factors that affect the distribution and determinants of disease in populations, maternal and child health, nutrition and food habits, human development, political ecology, health policy, health disparities, community-driven wellness practices, visual storytelling, social media designed to promote health equities, and language and communication in health care contexts.
A particular advantage of our program is the diverse array of opportunities for professional development that we offer students.
Our graduates have valuable skills to offer future employers in the health care industry, in nonprofits, museums, cultural resource management firms, health consulting firms, and advocacy organizations, as reflected by our success in student placements. We also graduate students who are highly competitive in admissions to selective graduate programs. You can learn more about our alumni by reading their bios here.
