Anthropology is the study of contemporary human cultural lives. In a globalised world, cross-cultural literacy and analysis have never been more important. The Master in Anthropology is a highly sought-after program that places very strong emphasis on anthropological theory and methods with the intention of equiping graduates with the skills for work in applied research contexts in the public and corporate sectors.
ANU is one of the world’s leading and highest ranked universities for anthropology. Globally, it has one of the highest concentration of anthropologists. The Master of Anthropology is convened by the School of Archaeology and Anthropology but draws on anthropological expertise from across the College of Arts and Social Sciences, the College of Asia and Pacific and other schools and centres across campus.
