The Department of Anthropology offers graduate programs leading to the degree of Master of Arts in Anthropology. The Master's thesis program emphasizes two streams: medical anthropology and environmental anthropology, while the project-based program offers a concentration in practicing anthropology. Students interested in applying to the program should consult in advance with the Graduate Chair or potential supervisor (faculty member who would supervise the student’s MA research). The graduate program has been designed to provide some flexibility in the choice of courses and research topics within the capacity of the department's resources. An applicant should hold a four-year honours degree, equivalent degree in anthropology or an academic discipline relevant to the proposed field of study. Students with Honours degrees in disciplines other than anthropology may apply, but they may be required to do qualifying or additional course work
