About the Department

Department of Archaeology and Anthropology

The Department of Archaeology and Anthropology has a vibrant graduate program. We offer a Master of Arts degree in Archaeology, Master of Arts degree in Anthropology with specializations in medical anthropology and environmental anthropology, and are currently developing a PhD. Program.

The Department has a major focus on the prehistory and history of the Northern Plains including long-term research projects such as the Wanuskewin Archaeological Project and numerous cultural resource management studies. The department also will accept a limited number of applications for research at the M.A. level in Syro-Palestinian archaeology.
The Anthropology program has specializations in Medical Anthropology and Environmental Anthropology. Both streams have strengths in ethnographic theory and method, psychological/cognitive/symbolic approaches, public policy, and socially engaged research.
