Prospective Students


We invite applications from students holding baccalaureate degrees in anthropology or related fields. Most successful students will have a strong science and quantitative analysis background. All applicants must submit academic transcripts, recent GRE scores and a statement of intent, which should discuss reasons for pursuing the degree to include career goals. Students from countries in which English is not the primary language must submit TOEFL scores; all foreign students must provide immigration forms guaranteeing financial support.

More information can be found from the Office of International Students and Scholar Services. Prospective PhD students are strongly encouraged to consult faculty member(s) when preparing an application to our program.
