The Department of Anthropology offers a graduate program leading to the Master of Arts degree in Anthropology. The course work in this program is conceptually four-field with faculty strengths in archaeology, cultural anthropology, and physical anthropology. A Graduate certificate in Maya Studies may also be earned. A program of graduate study dependent on the student’s interests will be individually developed with his or her graduate faculty advisor.
Students will be selected for the program on a competitive basis. Each student must have a specific faculty member agree to mentor them for admission to the program to take place. Students must also meet the following minimum requirements (meeting minimum requirements does not guarantee admission):
- Bachelor’s Degree (Accredited Institution)
