Our Graduate Program

At the University of Georgia, themes of ecology and environment connect our cultural anthropologists, anthropological archaeologists, and biological anthropologists to one another and to scholars and practitioners beyond the department and the university.  Our interdisciplinary and integrative connections give our work scholarly and practical relevance.  We offer a Ph.D. in Anthropology, and a Ph.D. in Anthropology and Integrative Conservation.  A master's degree is not required to apply to our Ph.D. program.
