The department’s strengths are reinforced by the Cornell programs in which they participate, including the East Asia Program, South Asia Program, Southeast Asia Program, Latin American Studies Program, Institute for European Studies, Asian American Studies Program, American Indian and Indigenous Studies Program, Latino Studies Program, Jewish Studies Program, Africana Studies and Research Center, Cornell Institute for Public Affairs, Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future, and Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program. Anthropologists also participate in the Cornell Institute of Archaeology and Material Studies, which coordinates the teaching and research of faculty drawn from a number of fields in the University; the institute offers an undergraduate major and masters degree in archaeology and doctoral degrees through the participating fields, including anthropology. The graduate program in anthropology at Cornell University is unusually flexible in that each student’s program is administered by a Special Committee composed of a chair representing the major in anthropology and 2 additional members representing the minors of the student’s choice. Each student’s program of study is developed by the student in consultation with the members of his/her committee who may represent as many as 3 different fields within the Graduate School. This flexibility permits students to develop either subdisciplinary or area interests and to combine these in a personally meaningful way. Of some 80 fields of graduate work offered at Cornell, anthropology students have minored in linguistics, development sociology, physiology, history, mathematics, ecology, psychology, and various area studies, among others. Linguistic training is offered through the Department of Linguistics. Training in skills relevant to human biology can be obtained within the Department of Anthropology or in the Division of Biological Sciences.
