Anthropology Master's Degree Requirements

Program | Faculty | Master's | Doctoral | Courses


Students working toward the Master of Arts degree in anthropology, in addition to fulfilling the general requirements of the Graduate School for the degree, must complete, and be evaluated on, a core program, normally comprising four to six specified courses, that has been developed in consultation with the student’s guidance committee. The core program is normally completed in the first two to three semesters of graduate work. Students complete the M.A. degree requirements through additional coursework or with an M.A. thesis.
