Overview

The Department of Anthropology offers a graduate program leading to the Master of Arts degree in Anthropology. The course work in this program is conceptually four-field, with faculty strengths in archaeology, cultural anthropology, and physical anthropology.

Degree-seeking students in the Anthropology MA program may elect to follow either a thesis or a nonthesis program of study, both of which require a minimum of 30 credit hours, 15 of which must be at the 6000 level. Students choosing the thesis option must receive a commitment from a faculty adviser for admission into the program. The thesis option is designed for students who plan to enter doctoral programs, while the nonthesis option is more appropriate for students entering or continuing professional careers following the MA degree. Students that focus their studies on archaeology and want to become a Registered Professional Archaeologist cannot pursue the non-thesis option. This registration requies an advanced degree that culminates in either a thesis or dissertation.
