Our department offers two graduate programs: The 36-credit hour Master of Arts in Anthropology; and the 72-credit hour Doctorate in Sociology, for which students may apply whether or not they have obtained a master’s degree. Each year, we admit a total of 25-30 applicants into these highly competitive programs. Courses range from osteology, gender and crime, environmental sociology, social control and culture resource management to archaeological methods and social stratification.
We are strongly committed to supporting student research. We encourage our students to work with faculty and to present their original research at national and international conferences.
Our faculty are among the best in their fields, with research agendas that span the globe and investigate a multitude of complex phenomena in the human experience, both past and present.
