A Note from the Program

The Department of Anthropology invites graduate student applicants interested in pursuing an MA/Ph.D. concurrent, and Ph.D. in Anthropology, whose research interests complement existing areas of faculty expertise. Our program also cooperates with other units on campus to accept applicants who wish to pursue MA/Ph.D. concurrent degree enrollment in two different disciplines, such as MA in Linguistics/Ph.D. in Anthropology. Our Ph.D. students have been recipients of prestigious grants and fellowships from extramural organizations such as the Fulbright-U.S. Student Program, National Science Foundation, and the Wenner-Gren Foundation.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
