Course Requirements

Students who are accepted into the Department of Anthropology's Sociocultural Wing graduate program begin by fulfilling core and subdiscipline requirements constituting a master's degree curriculum.

Each student admitted to the Graduate Program in the Department of Anthropology is responsible for knowing the curricular requirements. We encourage prospective students to make contact with currently enrolled graduate students, and to communicate with faculty members in relevant areas of specialization.

Students in the Sociocultural Wing Graduate Program must complete at least six graduate seminars, including three from among the following breadth areas: physiological, comparative, social, personality, sensation and perception, cognitive, developmental, and history of psychology.

Students are required to complete, with no lower than a B grade, three courses in statistics covering psychometrics and the analysis of experimental and correlational data, analysis of variance and covariance, and multivariate analysis. Students complete at least one of these courses before taking the preliminary written examination.
