Master’s program

General information and program requirements - Master of Arts Anthropology

Anthropology offers new critical perspectives on the world by highlighting how local and global issues are connected. The discipline’s field research method, ethnography, makes it possible to document in real time a host of complex phenomena pertaining to diverse topics such as medicine, the environment, minorities, media, indigenousness and more. As an Anthropology student, you will live “in the moment” to observe and understand the contemporary issues that emerge during field research taking place anywhere in the world.
