Overview

Program Details

The  Anthropology MA program offered by University of Saskatchewan has a focus on medical anthropology and environmental anthropology.

Our location and local connections also make us a leader in community-based and collaborative research with Indigenous peoples, with an emphasis on health, governance, land claims, and traditional ecological knowledge.

Medical Anthropology

Medical anthropology - the cross-cultural study of health, illness, and health systems - remains one of the fastest growing sub-fields of anthropology. It is unique in that it places central importance on the role of culture in understanding human suffering, response to illness, and resilience, and this sets it apart from cognate fields like medical sociology, health psychology, or community health.

Environmental Anthropology

Environmental anthropology is a rapidly emerging and timely sub-field of anthropology. Environmental anthropologists study not only how the environment shapes human culture and society, but also how humans shape the environment, and offers an understanding of human dimensions of environmental problems, leading to more effective solutions. Like medical anthropology, a sophisticated understanding of culture is found at the core of this sub-field.
