For graduate students interested in combining their studies in anthropology with extensive formal work in other disciplines, the thesis option is recommended. Depending on the student's previous work in anthropology, the student may be allowed to develop a program of study that combines anthropology and an allied field. Persons interested in such a program are urged to send a written inquiry to the department. In addition to a general MA in Anthropology with emphasis on cultural anthropology, biological anthropology, or archaeology, there are MA Specializations in International Development, Health and Well-Being, Humans and the Environment, and Professional Methods and Techniques. The PhD in Anthropology focuses on space, place, and adaptation, allowing students to pursue research interests in the traditional subfields of anthropology from a geographical perspective.
