About

Graduate study in Anthropology at the University of Pittsburgh covers a wide range of geographical and topical specialties in all four subfields of anthropology (social and cultural anthropology, archaeology, physical anthropology, and anthropological linguistics). 

Overview

We offer a master degree in Anthropology at the University of Pittsburgh. Three special programs focus academic activities around particular faculty strengths—archaeology of complex societies; medical anthropology; ethnicity, nationalism and the state—and are joined by a newly enhanced graduate program in physical anthropology. 

All four paths of study are embedded in a context of anthropological training of broad theoretical and geographical scope. Slightly over half the graduate students in the department concentrate their efforts in one of these four flagship programs; the rest pursue a variety of interests across the full range of anthropology.

Programme Structure

  • This a two-semester post-baccalaureate fellowship program. It is designed to help talented students from groups traditionally underrepresented in their academic disciplines, including first-generation graduate students and those from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds, to bridge the gap between an undergraduate degree and a graduate training program. 
  • Fellows enjoy financial support and mentoring by both faculty and graduate students as they prepare themselves for a successful program of doctoral studies. Of those who have completed the program at Pitt since 2011, 80% have gone on to graduate studies, at Pitt and elsewhere.
