The master's degree can be a first stage toward the doctorate or may be used by students wishing to apply knowledge of anthropology to a related field. Candidates must present a thesis or paper in lieu of a thesis acceptable to their advisers and another member of the graduate faculty within the department. We do not offer a terminal MA at this time and so this degree is typically only conferred to students already in our PhD program.
