Offered on campus
The Master of Arts in Applied Anthropology offers students the opportunity to use anthropological theories and methods toward the goals of solving real-world problems.
The program is constructed around a set of core courses together with mentored research projects and internships with community stakeholders. The degree takes advantage of our long-standing departmental strengths in public archaeology, urban anthropology, international development, globalization, medical anthropology, and museum studies.
Students may choose to follow a targeted curriculum, focusing on a particular aspect of the discipline; all students will also be well-trained in a broad range of anthropological approaches.
