Anthropology Department

The Graduate Program in Anthropology at the University of Virginia prepares students for careers in teaching, research, and applied work in the fields of Socio-Cultural Anthropology, Archaeology, and Linguistic Anthropology. We are a small, selective program funds about six PhD students each year across the three sub-disciplines. MA students are also encouraged to apply.

Our Department is known for its warmth, collegiality, and supportiveness. Classes are small, and students work closely with faculty members as well as their peers; students are encouraged to take courses in other disciplines. Regular workshops prepare students for proposal and grant writing, teaching, professional presentations, and job searches. Each sub-discipline hosts a series of faculty-graduate student research workshops and the Speakers Series brings together the entire Department community for Friday afternoon lectures by University and visiting speakers.
