Thank you for your interest in a graduate program in the Department of Anthropology at Indiana University Bloomington. To be considered for our graduate programs, you must complete the University Graduate School’s online application.
Anthropology is “the study of humankind” in all its richness and complexity. The Department of Anthropology at Indiana University believes that the discipline is most effective in this endeavor by including within its ranks scholars from a range of backgrounds and experiences. We therefore especially welcome applications to our graduate program from candidates belonging to minority groups that have been historically underrepresented on such bases as race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, economic class, age and physical ability. This year we anticipate admitting students in all sub-disciplines, and especially in archaeology and bioanthropology. We encourage you to contact potential advisors before submitting your application. A strong application, however, will reflect not only a good student-advisor match, but also how well your research interests might align with those of a community of mentors throughout the Department. We further encourage you to contact the Anthropology Graduate Student Association (AGSA) for information on the graduate student experience at IU Anthropology. The Department offers competitive stipends and multi-year funding packages to admits to the graduate program.
