Graduate Program in Anthropology
Brown University has offered doctoral and master's degrees in anthropology since the 1960s. Today, its graduates, trained for professional careers in socio-cultural anthropology, archaeology, and linguistics, are employed in a range of teaching, research, and museum positions, as well as in other fields where anthropological expertise is required.
Department of Anthropology faculty are social and cultural anthropologists, archaeologists, and anthropological linguists. Their research and teaching cover a wide range of the field, with special strengths in anthropological demography, political anthropology, medical anthropology, historical anthropology, language and culture, ethnicity, gender, ancient writing and representation, early urbanism, and historical and forensic archaeology. They have conducted research throughout the world, though special strengths are in Latin America and Africa.
