MA Applied Anthropology Orientation

Upcoming Orientation Dates: TBA (beginning for first semester)

The MA program begins with a brief orientation on campus. It is also possible to attend virtually. During this time, students build camaraderie and are introduced to key aspects of the program as well as department/campus resources. 

After the orientation, students undertake the additional program core coursework online. Students who would like to be on campus after the orientaiton are welcomed and will have access to departmental facilities – many of our students choose to remain on campus to take courses, be involved in labs, and form study groups.

Incoming students should see Information for New Students,  and the MA Class Schedule for more information on registration and preparation for the Summer Institute.
