Our department hosts a vibrant community of faculty, graduate students, undergraduates and scholars. We offer B.A., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees, as well as interdisciplinary certificates in Forensic Science, Digital Cultures, and Museum Studies. Many of our programs reach beyond campus – from The Milwaukee Public Museum, to the Medical Examiner’s Office, the Wisconsin State Crime Lab, and the Medical College of Wisconsin.As a field science, we offer field schools that enable students to experience anthropological research. In addition, our department houses a successful Cultural Resource Management (CRM) program and curates one of the largest archaeologically recovered skeletal collections in the U.S. Graduates from our programs have found employment in the nonprofit and government sectors as well as in business and academia.
