Program Description

The University of Oregon’s Department of Anthropology offers the doctor of philosophy (PhD) degree with a concentration in one of three subfields: archaeology, biological anthropology, or cultural anthropology.

While graduate students choose one subfield on which to focus their studies, many follow an interdisciplinary path that bridges between subfields, as well as to different disciplines.

This approach is encouraged in our department, which is distinctive in its commitment to the integration of the anthropological subfields via five areas of expertise and focus.

The goal of virtually all the students in our graduate program is to obtain a PhD in preparation for an academic career in research/teaching or for a career as a professional anthropologist doing applied work.
