  • MA in Anthropology: intended as a two-year program, it offers students breadth in relation to our department’s integrative research themes while grounding students in the research methods of their primary subfield (archaeological, biological or cultural anthropology)

Collaborative, community-based scholarship and a critical engagement with processes of knowledge production are centre pieces of our doctoral program.
