The Department of Anthropology at Southern Methodist University offers two graduate degree programs: the M.A. in Medical Anthropology and the Ph.D. in Anthropology (with an M.A. awarded en route to the Ph.D.). In the Ph.D. program, you can concentrate in Archaeology or in Cultural Anthropology either in "Medical Anthropology" or "Globalization and International Development."
Our program is designed to produce scholars — creative, energetic, articulate, and literate scholars. We endeavor to produce anthropologists whose research is sufficiently innovative to attract the notice of their peers, who will seek and receive research funding, and who will apply their training to the constructive development of the human groups with whom they work. It is our aim to train students in specialized skills based upon the broad understanding of anthropology acquired before entering our programs. Beyond providing you the skills necessary to becoming a professional anthropologist, the faculty also will endeavor to impart a professional attitude and a desire to practice those skills with precision and with passion. Your reputation demands nothing less.
