Graduate Program Information
The Department of Anthropology at the University of Washington is comprised of three principal anthropological sub-fields with which its faculty, programs, and curriculum are associated:
The department also offers a specializations in medical anthroplogy and global health which applicants can pursue within one of the traditional PhD track programs. Additionally, we have a concurrent MPH/PhD degree program with the departments of Epidemiology, Global Health, and Health Services. The M.A. degree can be earned ONLY within the Ph.D. programs as a thesis or non-thesis degree. Since 2011, the sociocultural anthropology PhD track program accepts applications every other year.
Although graduate students may take courses in any subdiscipline (and any department in the university), applicants wishing to be considered for admission to the Department of Anthropology choose only one of these programs: archaeology, biocultural anthropology, or sociocultural anthropology.
Course description information may be found in the University of Washington Course Catalog .
