Graduate Anthropology Studies at UVic
Our department has since 1966 offered a successful master’s program and since 2010 has offered an innovative doctoral program distinguished by our commitment to bridge anthropology’s traditional subfields through integrative themes that build on departmental research strengths: Inequality, Culture, Health; Evolution & Ecology; Indigenous Peoples; and Visual Anthropology & Materiality. Core seminars in these thematic areas provide a platform for graduate projects at both the MA and PhD levels.
MA in Anthropology
Our MA is intended as a two-year program that 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). Annual application deadline is January 31
PhD in Anthropology
Launched in 2010, our PhD program centres on integrative research themes intended to foster interdisciplinary dialogue around topics of pressing interest in contemporary anthropology and society. Collaborative, community-based scholarship and a critical engagement with processes of knowledge production are centre pieces of our doctoral program. Annual application deadline is January 31.
