Princeton offers a course of study and research leading to the PhD in Cultural Anthropology. The Program places special emphasis on problems in the analysis of meaning in cultural forms and on problems associated with change in both non-Western and Western society. Consistent with these emphases, the Program maintains close relations with other departments and programs at Princeton such as those in linguistics, religion, history, sociology, and the various regional studies programs on Africa, the Near East, East Asia, and European Studies. The department has three tracks: Socio-cultural; Medical and Legal/Political/Economic in the undergraduate major.
