Graduate

 

The Department of Anthropology at Iowa State University grants an M.A. degree in anthropology, structured around a holistic set of core courses offered in the areas of biological anthropology, archaeology, sociocultural anthropology and linguistic anthropology, with history and theory of the subdisciplines included in each course.

Beyond this, the Department of Anthropology encourages its graduate students to select area and topical courses according to their individual interests from one of five distinct tracks — Applied, Sociocultural, Linguistics, Archaeology or Biological. Each track offers a series of courses that will provide focus and direction for putting together a program of study.
