PhD in Anthropology
Bring new critical perspectives to problems and challenges of the contemporary world by highlighting links between local and global issues
The doctoral program in Anthropology at the University of Ottawa features innovative training that combines a contemporary theoretical approach with the existing experiential ways in which to learn about anthropology such as field work, ethnography, international experience, and multidisciplinary perspectives. The method of inquiry grounded in field work and ethnography allows you as the researcher, to document in real time the complexity of phenomena while situating various themes, including medicine, the environment, new media, the city, politics, the economy and indigeneity in diverse social and cultural contexts. The program curriculum newly includes a professional development seminar and a comprehensive exercise that favours your integration into the labour market.
While this program is offered full-time in French and in English, the three required doctoral seminars are offered only in French.
