Graduate studies in Anthropology at Binghamton University are diverse and flexible. Students train in the traditional four subfields of archaeology, biological anthropology, linguistic anthropology and social/cultural anthropology. Students are also encouraged to specialize along tracks that cross these sub-disciplinary boundaries as they pursue the MA degree, the MA degree in Public Archaeology, the MS degree in Biomedical Anthropology or the PhD.
