Master of Arts in Anthropology

Hands-on study with dedicated faculty.

Our master of arts in anthropology provides a holistic approach to anthropology, as well as applied training in one of three subfield areas of choice – archaeology, biological anthropology or cultural anthropology.

Choose the path that’s right for you

Students have the option of writing a thesis or completing an internship. There is also a non-thesis teaching track for students preparing to teach at the community college level.

Faculty connection

Our program is small, and you will be able to work closely with faculty on collaborative research. Some assistantships are available.

Hands-on learning

Field schools in prehistoric and historic archaeology are offered each summer, as well as bioarchaeological research opportunities in Israel and Jordan. Biological anthropology students may engage in forensic body recoveries and analyses. Cultural anthropology students participate in outreach programs, with topics such as migrant integration and culturally appropriate health interventions.

Job placement

We have a strong track record of placing our graduates in jobs in the field and into PhD programs.
