Anthropology is the key to the contemporary curriculum. Our courses are cross-listed in a variety of other departments: disciplinary, such as English, History, Linguistics, Biology, Psychology, and Religious Studies; areal, such as East Asian Studies, Latin American and Latino Studies, Near East Studies, African Studies, Africana Studies, and South Asian Studies; and professional schools and centers, such as Education, Design, Law, Wharton, Annenberg, Medicine, Nursing, Social Policy and Practice, and Public Health.
We have joint degree programs with several departments and schools. Our individual research topics engage a range of contemporary issues, including corporations and finance, media and communication, migration and demographics, science and technology, health and environment, heritage and identity, race and gender, violence and social control, poverty and rights, and political and economic development. This research informs the courses we teach.

Minimum required score:
The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.Schedule IELTS
A Research Paper may be an expanded or improved version of a paper initially written for a course, in which case the criterion for acceptance would be that it demonstrates that the student is capable of independent research. The Research Paper is normally article length (about 25-60 pages, excluding the bibliography). After being accepted by the Graduate Group, the Research Paper is filed in the Department's archive. An MA Thesis may also begin within the framework of a course, but it must demonstrate the student's research ability and constitute a recognizable contribution to knowledge beyond the simple capacity to do research.
The application fee is $80.
The living costs include the total expenses per month, covering accommodation, public transportation, utilities (electricity, internet), books and groceries.
