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).
