The AnthroGuide has been the premiere information source for the study of anthropology since 1962 when the first directory of anthropology programs was published. The AAA Executive Board issued a directive to publish a volume that would "assist students who want to go into the field, by providing such basic information as degrees offered; name, rank and specialties of the staff; basic strengths of the graduate programs, including number of courses offered in geographic areas and specialties; and where to write for catalogues and other information."
To include your program in the AnthroGuide, questions, or advertising, please email email@example.com.
As part of the AAA’s new Comprehensive Policy on Sexual Harassment and Sexual Assault, we now require field schools and other research experiences advertised on our website or through AAA-supported social media, draft and make available on demand a code of conduct prohibiting sexual assault and sexual harassment. Appropriate reporting mechanisms for those who do experience or witness sexual harassment or sexual assault will also be required.
This online searchable database also includes an additional paid advertising opportunity to be featured on the homepage as indicated on your application with you join/renew.
The AnthroGuide is included as a DSP Partnership benefit. The AnthroGuide cannot be purchased separately. These are the following DSP programs you can join, depending on your highest degree conferred:
*Although the AnthroGuide is a benefit of being a DSP Partner, Bachelors Programs and Affiliated Institutions/Field Schools/Museums are exceptions who may list in the AnthroGuide complimentarily without being DSP Partners. You can indicate this on the DSP join/renew application.
