Doctor of Philosophy Degree

There are three tracks in the Ph.D. Program in Anthropology: Archaeology, Human Health and Biology, and Sociocultural and Linguistic Anthropology. There are specific additional required courses within each track. The tracks generally require 60 hours of coursework and 30 hours of dissertation research for a total of 90 credit hours.

The Ph.D. student’s advisory committee will determine which courses, including core courses, may be used toward the 90 hours and will define the plan of study. Each doctoral student will complete a General Examination and dissertation defense.
