The Department of Anthropology provides students with a broad, research-based education in anthropology. The University of Wyoming Anthropology degrees include a Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy option, featuring:
- World-class faculty: Our faculty are leaders of regional and national organizations, active in journal and book publication.
- International opportunities: UW Anthropology students can engage in research projects across the world - we will help open the doors for you!
- Local fieldwork opportunities: For archaeology, students will be able to participate in faculty, CRM, federal agency and state archaeologist's office field projects.
- Personalization: The UW Anthropology program admits and average of 6-12 MA students and 1-6 PhD students each year; this means low student to professor ratios and increased interaction.
- Practical professionalism: UW Anthropology graduate programs are geared toward moving you forward in your career, whether it's in academia or elsewhere! We offer practical classes like grant writing and publication writing as well as skill-based methodological courses. Our PhD students complete a course that provides pedagogical instruction and mentoring support while they teach their first stand-alone introductory level anthropology course. Opportunities exist for further stand-alone teaching before graduation. Our students pursue internships that offer them experience in career options with which they may be unfamiliar (e.g., government agencies, national register nominations, museums, and the private sector).
