Students may pursue three different specializations in the Anthropology M.A. degree program: Archaeology; Cultural Anthropology; and Evolutionary Anthropology (though these specializations do not appear on the transcript or the diploma). The program provides excellent preparation for Ph.D. work by offering advanced statistical and methodological courses and research experience.
The graduate education also prepares students for a variety of careers outside of academia, including in corporations, all levels of government and non-profit organizations. Students who are committed to the field of Anthropology, but are undecided on a specialty, have an opportunity to explore options.
