Ph.D. in Anthropology

We offer a depth of study in all four anthropological subfields: archaeology, bioanthropology, linguistic anthropology, and social-cultural anthropology. Our graduate students choose one of these fields for specialization, and may take courses in or pursue an inside minor in any of the other fields.

You may also select one of four concentrations to supplement your graduate school coursework:

  • Archaeology and Social Context
  • Food Studies
  • Paleoanthropology
  • Medical Anthropology

Each of these supplemental concentrations involves its own breadth requirements within Anthropology that may require further class work.

All four fields of study have the following requirements in common.
