Master's in Anthropology

Our master's in Anthropology degree focuses on public anthropology by applying concepts, methods and insights to issues of contemporary relevance and concern. You'll gain valuable experience in archaeological field schools and community-engaged research projects or work in collections in our Museum of Anthropology gallery. To hone your expertise, we offer three distinct degree tracks in Archaeology, Cultural Anthropology and Museum and Heritage Studies.

Whether you pursue a career as a professional anthropologist, field technician, museum professional, national park staff member or heritage site educator, you'll be informed by a cross-cultural and historical perspective on the human condition.
