Areas of Specialization

Ph.D. students conduct fieldwork in many parts of the world. The study of European societies is a new area of interest in the Department. The Department’s Ph.D. students have recently engaged in research in Western and Eastern Europe, North, South and Central America, Southern Africa, Middle East, U.K., South and Southeast Asia, South Pacific, as well as in various provinces of Canada.

The McMaster Anthropology Department offers specializations in Archaeology, Socio-cultural Anthropology, Biological Anthropology, and Health. Please see the Anthropology website for the main fields of inquiry of Anthropology Department faculty members.

Admission and program requirements conform to the general University regulations at the front of this Calendar.

Upon arrival at McMaster a graduate student will either select or be tentatively assigned a faculty advisor from the Department. Together, the student and the advisor will determine the individual program of study to be followed. This program must be ratified by the Department Chair and the Graduate Committee.
