The Department of Anthropology offers programs of graduate study designed to provide a broad background in all significant facets of the discipline—biological, archaeological and sociocultural, analytic as well as descriptive—while still encouraging specialization. It provides training both for students interested in an academic career in anthropology and for those concerned with practical issues approached from the integrative perspective of anthropology. Each student’s program of study includes training in anthropological theory and methods, issues and problems in sociocultural anthropology, archaeology, and physical anthropology, as well as topics that focus on the student’s area of particular interest. Interdisciplinary research is actively encouraged, and many faculty and student projects involve collaborations with other departments and programs at UWM as well as a wide range of national and international institutions.
