The department of Anthropology at University of Florida offers graduate work leading to the Master of Arts (thesis or nonthesis option) and Doctor of Philosophy degrees


Key facts:

  • Students may opt for a general four-field track and an interdisciplinary track. The general track allows students more exposure to the four subfields of anthropology, as well as a specialization within anthropology at the Ph.D. level. The interdisciplinary alternative allows students to combine anthropology with course work and training in some outside discipline. The Anthropology program is offered at University of Florida.
  • The department generally requires applicants to have acceptable scores on the GRE (verbal, quantitative, and analytical portions) and a 3.2 overall grade point average based on a 4.0 system. Previous work in anthropology is an asset but not a strict requirement for admission. Potential applicants are urged to visit the website to familiarize themselves with the specializations of our faculty and to indicate in their application those faculty with whom they might work. Barring special circumstances, the Department restricts admission to applicants interested in earning a Ph.D. Students who enter without an M.A. will generally work for their M.A. on the way to the Ph.D. This requires either a formally-defended thesis or written qualifying exams combined with a high-quality paper or research report. With their adviser’s permission, they may opt to bypass the M.A. Knowledge of a foreign language or of statistics may also be required by the student’s supervisory committee.
