Anthropology and Population Program
Anthropology and Population is a special track in Brown University's Ph.D. program in anthropology. Candidates file a regular application for admission with Anthropology with the Graduate School, but indicate in their essay their interest in this program. Students must fulfill all of the requirements for the A.M.- Ph.D. program, receiving a broad education in anthropology.
Students are required to take graduate seminars in Anthropological Demography (ANTH 2300), Issues in Anthropology and Population (ANTH 2304). They are also required to take two population-related courses outside the Anthropology Department, one of which must be Principles of Population (SOC 2080). They choose Anthropological Demography as one of their preliminary examination topics, participate in the activities of the Working Group in Anthropology and Population and attend the regular colloquia of the Population Studies and Training Center. Special fellowships are available to students in this program. Click here for more information about Anthropology and Population at Brown.
