Welcome to 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 an anthropology and integrative conservation Ph.D. A master’s degree is not required to apply to our Ph.D. program.
