Welcome to Our Graduate Program!
Pursuing a MA in Anthropology
There are three options: Option I requires a thesis whereas Options II and III do not. We usually encourage students to pursue Option I - writing a thesis will improve a graduate's employment or doctoral program opportunities. In addition, we offer three graduate certificates that enhance your education and increase your level of specialty within anthropology: Digital Humanities, Forensic Anthropology, and Museum Studies.
Here is a list of the graduate-level courses that we currently offer to fulfill requirements for our MA program in anthropology. Additionally, you will find our course list for the upcoming semester.
